Cho Kuk’s appointment dominates Chuseok public sentiment

'조국에 묻힌 민생문제' 광주·전남 추석 민심

Cho Kuk’s appointment dominates Chuseok public sentiment

 

National holidays are always an interesting chance to listen to what people have to say about politics and economy.

Hyungjin Ro has more.

 

With the April 15, 2020 general elections just seven months away, public sentiment on this year's Chuseok holiday has been focused on the issue of the people's livelihood and the appointment of Justice Minister Cho Kuk.

 

Reflecting the political landscape in Gwangju and South Jeolla Province, citizens called on the ruling party to revitalize the economy, and requested the opposition party to unify the political community's voice for regional development.

 

Opinions were also divided on the creation of a new party in the third district, which is currently being pursued by the opposition camp.

 

However, like other regions, the appointment of the Justice Minister was the hottest topic during Chuseok holiday. Some raised denouncing voices over the decision saying it was in disregard of the public and caused new social divisions instead of combining them.

 

The opposition parties stepped up their offensive against the Moon Jae-In administration for appointing Cho as Minister during holiday period.

 

The main opposition Liberty Korea Party organized a large gathering at the National Assembly, Sunday, saying that the people wanted Cho to resign. The minor opposition Bareunmirae Party Chairman Sohn Hak-Kyu and party members also held a candlelit rally in central Seoul, Saturday, criticizing the appointment and calling for its cancellation.
