South Korean President choose the next Prime Minister

文대통령후임총리로 정세균 지명키로…조만간 발표

South Korean President choose the next Prime Minister

 

South Korean President Moon Jae In (문재인) has nominated Chung Sye Kyun (정세균) as the next Prime Minister to follow Lee Nak Yon (이낙연).

 

The officials evaluated that Chung, a ruling Democratic Partys senior member and a former National Assembly Speaker, who has experience as a corporate executive and industry minister will be suitable as a possible successor to Lee.

 

The decision of President Moon is also analyzed to put Lee, the longest serving Prime Minister since the country introduced the current direct presidential election system, as leader of the ruling party for the preparations for the general election and presidential bid. To run in the General Election, Lee will need to resign from his post no later than 90 days ahead of the voting date, which means he has until January 15th.

 

As for Chung, it is also known to be the first formal Chairman of Congress to become the Prime Minister of the nation. The official announcement is yet to be made, but it is expected soon.

 

However, some opposed officials criticized the fact that a formal head of the legislative branch should be the 2nd in command of the nation.
