Tokyo, Sept. 18 (Jiji Press)–Japan’s administrative reform minister Taro Kono suspended on Friday a system to accept complaints and opinions regarding excessive regulations and bureaucratic sectionalism, due to a flood of messages.

The suspension came a day after Kono invited such information from the public through an online form set up on his personal website.

As far more messages than expected came in, the new hotline was temporarily closed in order to sort them through, the minister said on Twitter.

He called on the public to use the Cabinet Office’s regulatory reform hotline in the meantime.
