All Japan Judo Federation Chair Haruki Uemura Wants To Stay Until October

In a "direct challenge" to All Japan Judo Federation Chair Haruki Uemura, who "insists on staying the course despite calls for him to resign," members of the AJJF's regional council have proposed discussing his dismissal, according to KYODO. The AJJF has agreed to reconvene a council meeting in the coming weeks. Uemura "has insisted on remaining at his post until he completes his mission to reform the scandal-tainted body," saying on Tuesday he plans to step down in October. However, several members of the regional council are asking that he resign sooner (KYODO, 6/26).
