Bunshin Suematsu, a member of the assembly from the Liberal Democratic Party, told reporters after a Thursday meeting with his supporters that he expressed his intention at the meeting to run in the Nago mayoral election on Jan. 19.
Incumbent Nago Mayor Susumu Inamine, who is opposed to the relocation plan, has also announced his candidacy. The government’s plan calls for the transfer of the U.S. Marine Corps’ Futenma Air Station in Ginowan to the Henoko coastal district in Nago.

Comment: I've got no dog in this race, though admittedly I don't like the idea of them filling in Orua bay to build runways that will all but virtually guarantee an American military presence on Okinawa through the next millwnium. On the other hand, I also have to admit that, I can't stand Nago's communist sympathizing Mayor anymore than I can stand that communist P.O.S. currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I guess that's cause I'm allergic to them, communists that is!
All that being said, you can probably figure that Governor Nakaima's decision as to whether he will approve or disapprove of this disaster will be delayed until after the election. So from my perspective, a win-win would be a Inamine loss in Nago and Nakaima breaking it off in ole Abe's bum and shoving it in the face of the Obama-Nation of Desolation as spoken of by the "profit" Daniel by nixing the deal!
