Winning the Nago mayoral election on January 19, reelected Nago Mayor Susumu Inamine held a press conference in the morning of the next day. The focal issue of the election was to move U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma to the Henoko district of Nago. In the office of his support group in Onaka, Inamine said, “A day after winning the election, I will do my best to stand strong against what will come.” He showed his determination to work on preventing the Henoko relocation.

If the Japanese government forces through the plan to build a new U.S. military base, Inamine intends to exercise his authority to prevent it. Inamine claimed, “Even though the central government carries out the survey for the reclamation, I will exercise my authority as the mayor, including the right to manage Henoko Fishing Port to prevent the plan.”
