TOKYO (Kyodo) — Tokyo Gov. Naoki Inose submitted his resignation Thursday over his receiving of 50 million yen in cash from hospital operator Tokushukai, which is mired in vote-buying allegations involving a Diet member.
His resignation came after pressure had mounted for him to step down, not only from the metropolitan assembly but from the central government and his predecessor, former Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara. Inose was elected Tokyo governor Dec. 16 last year.
Tokushukai, the largest Japanese operator of medical facilities, is at the center of an election violation case involving House of Representatives member Takeshi Tokuda, the son of Tokushukai founder Torao Tokuda.
