All national dailies wrote that the Okinawa prefectural assembly approved on Tuesday a revised ordinance on the Feb. 24 referendum on the Futenma relocation to Henoko that will give voters the choice of “neither” in addition to “yes” or “no.” The vote was not unanimous, as some LDP members had cast ballots against it. According to the papers, it remains unclear whether all Okinawa municipalities will participate in the referendum because their mayors had requested a unanimous decision by the prefectural assembly.
