The Saturday editions of Asahi and Yomiuri reported that Administrative Reform Minister Kono announced on Friday that he had temporarily suspended a newly established online system for taking suggestions from the public for cutting red tape because it had already received more than 4,000 messages. Kono reportedly said: “This is likely to exceed my processing capacity. Since I said I would read all of the messages, I need to temporarily suspend it.” Kono reportedly added that the public can also use the Cabinet Office’s regulatory reform hotline to offer suggestions for administrative reform. The new hotline was set up on Kono’s personal website on Thursday.
