20161202 morning2Asahi claimed in its lead story that it will probably be extremely difficult for NHK President Momii to stay in his post beyond his present term that expires next month because some of the board governors in charge of appointing the NHK president are negative about the idea of allowing him to remain in his post. Pointing out that 9 of the 12 governors have to give consent to the selection of the broadcaster’s president, the papers said some members are highly skeptical about Momii’s leadership over the past three years, as evidenced by a number of controversial remarks made by the former businessman. An unnamed high-ranking ruling party official said: “It is certain that Momii will not be reelected.”
