OSAKA — Political pressure has forced an Osaka City University graduate school to reconsider whether to allow Kiyomi Tsujimoto, who resigned from the House of Representatives in scandal, to participate in a campus workshop, the school said Thursday.

A nine-member group has begun discussing whether to have Tsujimoto, who helped establish the nongovernmental organization Peace Boat in 1983, participate in a workshop on nonprofit organizations, the university said.
