Newly Elected Mayor Yoon to Take Office Tomorrow


Newly elected Gwangju Mayor, Yoon Jang-hyun, will take office tomorrow at 10 a.m. and the inaugural ceremony will be held in the Gwangju City Hall Meeting Room from 10 a.m.

The municipal motto, ‘Gwangju, a City Living All Together Harmoniously’, has been set for the next four years. The ‘Hopeful Gwangju Preparation Committee’, the transition committee for the mayoral post, has announced that tomorrow’s inaugural ceremony will be held without separate invitation of guests.

Instead, some 700 Gwangju city public officials will attend the ceremony, which will be broadcast live on youtube.

New Mayor Yoon will make a visit to the memorial tower in Gwangju for the April 19th Revolution or Uprising, the Students Independence Movement Memorial site, and the May 18th National Cemetery and attend the inaugural ceremony tomorrow.

Later in the afternoon, Mayor Yoon is scheduled to take a look around areas vulnerable to floods during the monsoon season and inspect welfare facilities as well as meet with youth activists and discuss support measures for increased employment opportunities.
