The results of the election of the governor of Okinawa Prefecture in Japan were announced on the evening of September 30, local time. They opposed the relocation of the US-based Futenma base stationed in Japan to the Governor of Okinawa Prefecture.

According to Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, the 58-year-old former House of Representatives Jade City Danny defeated the Mayor of Gyeongye Bay, the 54-year-old former Yeinowan Mayor, who was recommended by the Liberal Democratic Party, the Komeito Party, the Reform Party and the Hope Party, in the 30th election. The eighth governor of Okinawa Prefecture.

The core issue of this governor's campaign is the relocation of the US military's Futenma base in Japan and the economic revitalization.

More than 70% of the US troops stationed in Japan are concentrated in Okinawa Prefecture. The Futenma US military base is located in Ginowan City, Okinawa Prefecture, close to residential areas, bringing noise and major safety hazards to local people, and has been criticized for a long time. The Japanese and US governments have previously agreed to relocate the Futenma base to the border area. The Okinawa people expressed strong opposition to this and hoped to completely move the US military base out of Okinawa. 

Former Okinawa Governor Weng Changzhi is a leading figure in the anti-US military base movement. He opposed the relocation camp and originally planned to elect him as a candidate, trying to make him re-elected as a governor. However, Weng Chang suddenly passed away in August, forcing the camp to pick up other candidates, and Yucheng stood out in the crowd.

The biggest focus of the 2014 Okinawa governor campaign was the relocation of the Futenma base. At that time, Weng Changzhi, who was the mayor of the former Naha City, opposed the relocation of the Futenma base to other parts of the prefecture and should move outside the county and abroad, and defeated Zhongjing Zhen and others as governors. 

In addition to the issue of the US military base, the campaigners also debated on economic revitalization, how to raise the income of the county residents, and childcare support policies. The economic source of Okinawa Prefecture is mainly tourism. The number of people visiting Okinawa Prefecture last year was 9.58 million, which reached the highest record for five consecutive years. However, the per capita income of the county residents is the lowest in the country - 2.16 million yen (about 130,000 yuan).

In July this year, the effective job-seeking ratio (the ratio of employment users to job seekers) in Okinawa Prefecture was 1.14 times, 0.49% lower than the national average, and the lowest among the prefectures in Japan. In addition, poverty and medical problems in the region are also issues for the campaigners.
