Gwangju-Jeonnam administrative integration plan will likely gain momentum



The Gwangju City government and the City Council have decided to jointly respond to the issue of administrative integration between Gwangju City and Jeonnam Province.


According to the city, Mayor Lee Yong-sup and the chairman and vice-chairmen of the city council held a meeting to discuss the issue. Lee reportedly explained why he raised the issue of administrative integration and asked for cooperation from the council.


He also apologized for not having enough communication with the local community including the city council, before bringing up the integration issue.


Lee said the city will form a preparatory group to set up a working-level promotion system and consult closely with the city council and civil organizations.


In response, the city council decided to not join the working-level task force formed by the City, but to set up a separate discussion body with the Jeonnam Provincial Assembly.


Lee also met with the heads of the five district offices to discuss the integration issue and confirmed that they are on the same page on the issue.


The Mayor is expected to meet with influential figures during the Chuseok holiday to gather opinions on integration.
