Ryukyu Shimpo ran an interview on Tuesday with former Ginowan Mayor Sakima Atsushi in which he said he will consider the option of running in the Okinawa gubernatorial election slated for next fall if the right environment is created and there are calls from the people of Okinawa for his candidacy. The paper interpreted this remark to mean that Sakima intends to throw his hat in the ring. Sakima also ran against Tamaki in the 2018 gubernatorial election.
