Japanese voters have chosen the opposition in elections this time around because they were fed up over 50 years of rule by the governing conservatives.
 
The victorious Democratic Party of Japan has to keep up its promises to work immediately to deal with the country's severe economic problems.
 
The Democrats won 308 of the 480 seats in the powerful lower house, .
 
"Today we started policy discussion to seek a three-party coalition. The key is how much we can agree on policies. But I believe we can produce final results fairly soon," Hatoyama told reporters
 
Aso has announced he will step down as president of the conservative  pary and has promised a smooth transition.
