All national dailies wrote that a panel tasked with selecting the next president of the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games held its second meeting on Wednesday and apparently decided to ask Olympic Minister Hashimoto to assume the post following the resignation last week of former President Mori. However, Hashimoto told reporters on Wednesday that the organizing committee has set up a selection panel and was still in the process of deciding on a candidate. If Hashimoto, a seven-time Olympian, accepts the offer, the selection panel will select her as an official candidate at its third meeting and the organizing committee will endorse her as its new chief at an executive meeting today.
