The government informally decided on Aug. 9 to appoint Aiko Shimajiri, former state minister for Okinawa and Northern Territories affairs, as special adviser to incumbent State Minister for Okinawa and Northern Territories Affairs Yosuke Tsuruho. Although Shimajiri lost her House of Councillors seat in the July Upper House election, the government has decided to give her the post. The government apparently seeks continuity in its policy.
