Kim Young Rok topped the ruling party’s Jeonnam governorship primary with 41% votes

민주당 전남지사 김영록 41%  1장만채와 결선투표

Kim Young Rok topped the ruling partys Jeonnam governorship primary with 41% votes

 

Former agriculture minister topped the ruling partys primary Jeollanamdo governorship election, but it was not enough to avoid a runoff.

Yeongju An reports.

 

Kim Young-rok, the former Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, took the first place with 40.93 percent of the vote for the election of the ruling Democratic Party's candidate for provincial governor Jeonnam in the local elections.

 

However, as there were no candidates for the majority in the primary, Kim will take part in a runoff election on April 18th, in which Jang Man Chae, the second place winner and the former Jeollanamdo Education office Superintendent will be the other candidate. Jang won 32.5 percent of the vote, followed by former Cheong Wa Dae secretary Shin Jeong Hoon with 26.58%

 

Democratic party Jeollanamdo governor candidate election was held in such a way adding 50% of democrats votes to the polls and 50% of the general public polls. The runoff election vote will be held on the 18th and 19th by the same survey method as the election.

 

As the race continues, it will be a big factor to determine where the votes that backed former Cheong Wa Dae secretary Shin Jung-hoon are moving to. Also, competitiveness in the final election, organizational power in the party, and the popularity from the eastern area of Jeollanamdo are expected to be some of the final variables.
