Naha Mayor to Retire Soon

Date Posted: 2000-02-12

The Mayor of Naha City, the 73-year-old Kosei Oyadomari, recently told a leading local newspaper that he would retire at the end of his current term. According to an interview published in the Ryuku Shimpo last week, the popular mayor will make an official announcement around mid-February. "I wish to go for personal reasons," he told the newspaper’s reporters. "I want a creative, decisive and younger person to take over," he added. His coalition supporters, the Social Masses, Social Democratic and Communist Parties are supposed to start negociations on designating a successor. However, most of them have been putting pressure on him to call off his retirement. It is unlikely that those wishing for him to stay will be able to make him change his mind, because one of the main reasons he cites concerning his wish to retire has to do with his deteriorating health. The mayor also believes that he has served in that position for too long, and would like to pass on the administrative torch to someone new.
