The International Olympic Committee said that it would not seek the resignation of Yoshiro Mori, chairman of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, in controversy this week due to derogatory rhetoric about women. The committee said that it is enough for him to apologize.
Earlier, Mori said, ‘I am not thinking of resignation. I have been working very hard for seven years. I will not resign Mori said, “This statement is quite unfair and contrary to the spirit of the Olympics and Paralympics.” I take it back. I apologize for this. ‘
Actually, the organizing committee wants to avoid this new controversy regarding former Prime Minister of Japan Yoshiro Mori, because the Olympics are the biggest challenge in the midst of the Corona epidemic. The games will start on July 23 after being postponed for a year.
According to local media, at the online meeting of the Board of Directors of the Japanese Olympic Committee earlier this week, Mori said that women talk a lot in the meeting. This statement caused a big controversy in Japan.
