According to a report from Kyodo News on February 18, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga decided on the 18th to use the former Olympic director Marukawa Suyo (50 years old).
Yoshihide Suga attaches importance to the perspective of women’s activeness and the past experience that contributed to the success of the Tokyo Olympics, so he decided to use Marukawa again.
He said to Hashimoto: “I hope you will do your best to make it a popular Olympic Games. I will provide practical support.
According to the report, just because the personnel appointment was a sudden change caused by the former chairman of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Yoshiro Mori’s contempt for women, government officials such as Yoshihide Suga took into account public opinion and promoted the selection with women as the center.
Once again, Marukawa intends to step up and revitalize the Olympics, and smoothly advance preparations. This is the first time that the cabinet of Yoshihide Suga, who came to power last September, has changed cabinet officials.
Suga Yoshihide Hashimoto as the chairman of the Olympic Organizing Committee, said to the media at the official residence that “I hope she will do her best to achieve a safe and secure Olympics that are welcomed by the world”, and also said “I look forward to her realizing the Olympic and Paralympic concepts And work hard.”
