Abstract :The ouster of Mayor Senaga of Naha City from his office by order of the High Commissioner of the USCAR is a well known scandal from the year 1957 in Okinawa, not only as a violation of the autonomy of local government by the U.S. Administration Power occupying then the Ryukyu Islands, but also for the fact that it was rather Ryukyuan political leaders including mayors and chairmen of the local assemblies, businessmen, and editors of the mass-media who urged the Order of the High Commissioner. He intervened because there was no legitimate solution left in the Assembly of Naha City to succeed in a vote of no-confidence in the Mayor, nor in the Ryukyu Legislature to amend an article in the Municipal Autonomy Law, which could enable the no-confidence, because the Legislature has denied it by the good reason that the case was too particular to generalize in a law. This paper tries to focus on a hitherto forgotten relationship between the ouster and the role that the government of the Ryukyu Islands played by another whole-scale amendment of the Law, processed along with the campaign for ouster throughout the year.
