TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Monday it was up to the government and parliament to decide whether or not he serves a second term as head of the central bank.

Kuroda, speaking in the lower house budget committee, also said the BOJ still had ample room to ease monetary policy if needed.

Kuroda's term ends on April 8, 2018.
