Ryukyu Shimpo and Okinawa Times ran front-page reports saying that they have learned from several GOJ sources that the central government is planning to delay its response to the Okinawa prefectural government’s revocation on Aug. 31 of its landfill permit for the FRF construction at Henoko until after the Sept. 30 gubernatorial election. The papers speculated that the GOJ is considering putting off taking action against the revocation out of concern that the Okinawa public would react strongly if Tokyo took legal measures.
