Frederick "Fritz" Henderson, second in command at beleaguered General Motors Corp (GM), is the likely candidate to take over the firm amidst reports that GM head Rick Wagoner has been asked to leave by the US government, media reports said.

Henderson, 50, the chief-operating-officer, is the likely replacement, at least on a temporary basis, The New York Times reported on Sunday, citing people close to the situation. Henderson met members of the government panel overseeing the car industry bailout.

Wagoner, 56, who has headed GM since mid 2000, will resign as head of General Motors Corp under an agreement with the government to continue bailing out the struggling carmaker, the Detroit Free Press reported on Sunday.
