Monday’s Yomiuri wrote that the LDP’s Okinawa chapter decided yesterday to field a 38-year-old former civil servant in the July Upper House election to unseat the opposition incumbent who plans to seek a second term. The paper said the ruling party is growing increasingly confident that it will fare well in the national race along with the gubernatorial election scheduled for the autumn in view of the ruling candidates’ victories in three key mayoral races in the island prefecture this year.
