Before his election in December 2014, Onaga made clear his opposition to plans to move the US Nike Air Max Tn Femme marines Nike Metcon Mujer from their present facility at Futenma Air Station, in the heavily populated central part of the prefecture, to Camp Schwab at Henoko. In office he was no less willing to compromise on the question of US troops stationed on Okinawa and made it Asics Gel Lyte 5 Mujer clear that he wanted the marines from Futenma moved to mainland Japan rather than shuffled elsewhere in the prefecture.Now that Onaga has gone, however, the question turns to which side in the bitterly contested fight over the US troops will benefit most in the election, which has been brought forward from November to late September.

“On the one hand, the government and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party are well organised, know how to campaign and are well funded,” said Jeff Kingston, director of Asian Studies at the Tokyo campus of Temple University. “That gives them a significant advantage, particularly Nike Air Max 90 Womens Blue if their political allies Komeito also lend their support. Also, it appears that young people in Japan in general, and including in Okinawa, are a bit more conservative in their voting habits and the government’s candidate may benefit Asics Gel Lyte 5 Womens all the young people who were recently granted the vote when the age limit was reduced to 18.”

On the other hand, he said, those who shared Onaga’s ultimate aim of a prefecture free of US troops will hope to build on his campaign.

“There is going to be a lot of sympathy for Onaga and plenty of people who will be campaigning for the candidate who says he will carry out his predecessor’s last wishes,” said Kingston.

Polls tend to show that two-thirds of Okinawans oppose the plan to shift the US marines to Camp Schwab, even though work has already begun to reclaim land that will eventually serve as two new runways for fighter jets. Similarly, more than half of locals say they want the US military out of the prefecture as soon as possible.
