Ryukyu Shimpo and Okinawa Times wrote that the LDP Okinawa chapter has decided to change its policy platform to state that it approves of the plan to relocate the Futenma base to Henoko and seeks the return of the base at an early date. The existing platform states that the chapter will pursue all possibilities, including Henoko. The LDP chapter will officially adopt the new policy at its general meeting on April 8. An LDP official in Okinawa said that the local chapter will explicitly state that it approves of the Henoko plan because the GOJ has already begun construction work at Henoko and the prefectural government has lost its legal battle against the central government at the Supreme Court.
