Rep. Lee Jong-gul Elected as a New Floor Leader of the NPAD

새정치민주연합 새 원내대표에 이종걸 의원

Rep. Lee Jong-gul Elected as a New Floor Leader of the NPAD


The main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy elected Rep. Lee Jong-gul as the new floor leader of the party yesterday.


Formerly a human rights attorney, the fourth-term lawmaker won 66 of the 127 ballots in the final round of voting, defeating Rep. Choi Jae-seong by 5 votes. Lee will replace existing floor leader Rep. Woo Yoon-keun.


Grandson of a renowned independence activist during the Japanese occupation of Korea, Lee Hoi-yeong, Rep. Lee will be tasked to stamp out the growing factionalism inside the party following its disappointing defeats to the Saenuri party in the by-elections last month.


Lee will also be in charge of leading negotiations with the Saenuri over public service pension reforms, which have generated criticism from the public.
