Ahn Cheol-Soo’s new party to hold launch ceremony in Gwangju on Feb. 16th


Ahn CheolSoo(안철수) made a new political move by forming a new party. Our HyungJin Ro has more.

New political parties will be set up ahead of the April 15 general election. Former presidential candidate Ahn Cheol-soo is forming a new party named "People Party".


The party will hold a ceremony to launch its Gwangju office on February 16th with Ahn and his aides in attendance. They previously launched a preparation committee for a new political party on Sunday.


Last month, he defected from the minor opposition Bareunmirae Party he had co-founded, and is currently leading the preparation committee for the new party.


At the launch ceremony, Ahn vowed to fight against the country's deep-rooted authoritarianism and partisan politics, while seeking pragmatic and centrist politics.


Ahn's group is planning to finish preparations this month and officially launch the party on March 1st.
