unnamed (15)The Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo reported heavily in front- and inside-page stories on the results of Sunday’s local prefectural assembly election, underscoring that Governor Onaga’s anti-FRF campaign will gain additional momentum as his supporters won 27 seats in the 48-member legislature. The dailies claimed the outcome reflected local voters’ strong opposition to the Futenma relocation plan, predicting that the LDP will be forced to wage an uphill battle in the campaign for the July Upper House election.
