Tokyo Olympics to pick Yoshiro Mori replacement; is a woman likely?

Yoshiro Mori's replacement as president of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee is expected to be named very quickly. The 83-year-old former prime minister was forced to step down last week after making demeaning remarks about women.

Basically, he said they talk too much.

There is pressure to name a woman to replace Mori. But don't bet on it happening with the Olympics opening in just over five months. Mori tried last week to work behind the scenes to appoint 84-year-old Saburo Kawabuchi, the former head of the governing body of Japanese soccer. public opinion and social media quickly pushed back against the move and Kawabuchi withdrew from consideration.

Some news reports in Japan say the winner could be 63-year-old Yasuhiro Yamashita, the top of the japanese Olympic Committee and a judo gold medalist from the 1984 Olympics.

Yamashita took over the japanese Olympic body after his predecessor, Tsunekazu Takeda, was forced to step down in 2019 during a bribery scandal. Yamashita is additionally a member of the International Olympic Committee by virtue of his position in Japan.

A panel to select Mori's replacement, found out by the organizing committee, met on Tuesday. it had been expected to satisfy again Wednesday and is available up with an inventory of candidates. It's unclear when the selections are going to be announced. The panel is headed by 85-year-old Fujio Mitarai, the chairman of the camera company Canon. Organizers have promised transparency. However, apart from Mitarai, the opposite members haven't been announced. it's to be a 50-50 split of men and ladies with fewer than 10 members.
