Okinawa moved to the wilderness base to vote on the US military base.

On the 24th, the Okinawa prefecture of Japan moved to the Ueno-no-Minami, Okinawa Prefecture, and moved to Okinawa, Okinawa Prefecture, and voted for more than half of the residents who voted against it.

Japan Kyodo News reported on the 24th that Okinawa Prefecture Governor Yucheng Danny will inform the Prime Minister of Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Trump. Okinawa Prefecture will again ask for abandonment of relocation based on public opinion, but the results of the county vote are not legally binding. It is expected that the Japanese government will adhere to the principle of relocation.

Focus On the issue of the relocation of the wilderness, it is the first time that the citizens of the county directly express their opinions. Since the vote reached a quarter of the eligible voters, the governor is obliged to respect the result of the vote under the voting rules.

The report said that the Japanese government believes that the only solution to eliminate the dangers of the Futenma Airport is to relocate to the wilderness. However, if the government continues to construct construction despite the opposition to more than half of the voting results, it will inevitably lead to more strong opposition from the county residents, which may affect the April 3 elections in the Okinawa District and the July Senate election.

In this vote, the public chose from three options: yes, no, and no. The voting regulations stipulate that if the number of votes with the most votes reaches one quarter of the eligible voters, the governor must respect the voting results and inform the Prime Minister and the President of the United States of the results.
