General Election to be conducted 'in dark', some assert for 'election campaigns to resume'

 

The April 15th general election is one month away; however, with the prohibition of in-person election campaigns, the fact that the election is 'in the dark' is raising concerns.

 

Therefore, there are cautious discussions between the candidates to resume election campaigns during the official campaign period.

 

The Democratic Party of Korea confirmed nominees for 15 constituencies out of 18 in total among Gwangju and Jeonnam regions.

 

However, as the ruling party, the Democratic Party stopped all election campaigns to control COVID19. It is perceived that the countermeasures to the COVID19 situation are directly related to the public votes.

 

As for the other regions such as in the capital areas, there is still COVID19 spreading; therefore, in-person election campaigns are hesitating.

 

However, there are still difficulties being discussed with the non-face-to-face election campaigns.

 

The concerns are for the high level of public awareness and solid foundation that the MinSaeng(민생) Party's candidates have, who are currently active members. Also, as there were complaints regarding the election nomination process within the Democratic Party, pressure has been added.
