Ryukyu Shimpo and Okinawa Times front-paged Nago municipal assembly member Yohei Kishimoto’s decision to run in the local mayoral election scheduled for next year, speculating that his campaign platform will include opposition to the ongoing FRF construction initiative off Camp Schwab. He was quoted as saying that “it has been made clear through various referendums that Nago residents are against” the project. The politician, the eldest son of a former mayor, is expected to win endorsement from political groups supporting Governor Tamaki and face off with incumbent Mayor Toguchi, a proponent of the realignment plan.
