TOKYO — On May 14, Lower House member Kosaburo Nishime and two other Okinawa-elected Diet members with the Liberal Democratic Party met with LDP Secretary-General Toshihiro Nikai at the party headquarters and were given the green light to return to Okinawa to support the party’s candidates running in the July 7 prefectural assembly election. This was revealed by Nishime after the meeting.

 

Nikai is calling on LDP parliamentarians to refrain from returning to their home constituencies amid the coronavirus pandemic but concluded that the prefectural assembly election should be treated as a special case. (Abridged)
