Unequal Allocation of Key Governmental Positions in Park Geun-hye Administration

 

The issue of unequal allocation of key governmental positions in the Park Geun-hye administration has resurfaced as high-ranking officials are mainly based in Yeongnam regions, raising concerns for under-representation of Honam and other regions.

The Park administration conducted a total of 42 appointments for high-ranking governmental officials since the president took office in early 2013 and more than 35 percent of the entire governmental officials come from Yeongnam regions.

A total of 64 personnel are based in the Yeongnam regions and this is more than twice as many as officials who originated from the Honam regions and a lot more than Seoul and Gyeongi-based personnel.

Upon the 2nd reshuffle under Park Geun-hye administration, conducted last week, Seoul and Yeongnam each produced a total of 6 ministerial governmental officials, whereas from the Honam and Chungcheong areas, only 1 and 2 personnel each were appointed.

Political experts said President Park Geun-hye’s composition of her administration favors Yeongnam regions over any other area in Korea and this goes against the President’s campaign pledges during the election that promised regional balance and national harmony.
