RESULTS FOR TADATOSHI AKIBA:
Performance index:
April 2011: 7.22 points out of 10

COMMENTS:
Thumbs up:
• From Todd O (Ouside Japan): Observing Martin Luther King day and being a very active international Mayor. These are the best I think thus far and believe that more will come.



Thumbs down:
• From Amu J (Japan): Failing to promote peace where Japan in involved. Japan is the main donor to most of the countries that are having worst human rights records, especially Sri Lanka.
