Ginowan Mayor bids for re-election, less radicalism

Date Posted: 2001-05-25

The current Ginowan City mayor, Seiko Higa, officially announced May 16 that he would seek re-election for the second term in July.

Higa said he wants to proceed with the land development plan for the current MCAS Futenma from a citizen’s point of view. This is said to mean that he actually accepts the plan to relocate MCAS Futenma to Henoko, Nago City. That would be a change from his conventional policy of being against the plan moving the facility within Okinawa. He said that the land development is more important than arguing on a matter that is not sure. He will run in the election without a party affiliation.

In accordance with his decision, Higa’s former support group, “Citizens of 21st century” decided Friday not to support him any more since they cannot agree with his new policy, and with his decision to distance himself from radical policies. The group plans to field its own candidate in the election.
