Political parties fill floor leadership positions through primaries


Meanwhile, top positions being filled in parliament
— specifically, the floor leaders of two of the main political parties. The ruling Democratic Party of Korea has elected
WOO Won-shik , a three-term lawmaker, as its new floor leader. Shortly after winning that vote, Woo said
he will, along with the people, the party leader,… and President Moon… put the Republic
of Korea on the road to success. And he said he will do everything in his power
to bring about national unity and reform. The center-left People’s Party also chose
its new floor leader — Kim Dong-cheol , who’s a four-term lawmaker. Kim promised to keep the Moon administration
from veering off course in the running of the new government. He added that with local elections just a
year away,… he and the party leadership will do their best to understand what the
people want… and help make the party strong again after its disappointing showing in the
presidential election.
