Today (29th), with the presidential election just 100 days away, the regional moves of the opposition and opposition runners began in earnest.
Democratic Party presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung has been concentrating on capturing the hearts of the people in Honam for the fourth day.
People’s Power Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol headed to Chungcheong for the first regional schedule since the operation of the election committee.
Connect with reporters from the National Assembly. Deputy Chief Reporter!
Candidate Jae-myung Lee completes his four-day Honam schedule today.
What message did you send out 100 days before the election?
Candidate Jae-myung Lee is continuing the schedule in the Honam region of the so-called ‘Matta Bus’, which he rides every week for the fourth day.
Earlier in the morning, the ‘All National Election Countermeasures Committee’ meeting was held in Gwangju.
On the subject of ‘I am Jae-myung Lee, the people to Jae-myung Lee’, we had a conversation with 200 attendees on the spot.
Candidate Lee, who bowed his head again and again today, vowed to do everything in his power to improve the lives of the people, and vowed to become the president of the economy and the president of the people’s livelihood.
Listen to this candidate’s remarks.
[이재명 / 더불어민주당 대선 후보 : 지금 이 순간부터 저의 목표는 오직 경제 대통령, 그리고 민생 대통령입니다. 국민의 지갑을 채우고, 나라 경제를 성장시키는 데 모든 역량을 집중하겠습니다.]
Candidate Lee then visited Chosun University and met college students from the Gwangju area, continuing his youthful walk every time he had a local schedule.
At this meeting, I argued for the legislation of the ‘Chun Doo-hwan Penalty Inheritance Act’, which requires repayment of the late Chun Doo-hwan’s remaining surcharge-related inheritance.
Soon after, we had lunch together with officials from the May 18 Democratization Movement at a restaurant in Dong-gu, Gwangju.
In the afternoon, we met with merchants at Yeonggwang Terminal Market in Jeollanam-do and ended our four-day tour of Honam’s livelihoods.
Candidate Lee, who met with reporters, said that he felt that he had not been able to respond promptly enough to the people’s small breaths and voices through this schedule.
People’s Power Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol said that he would also receive the 50 trillion won loss compensation promise, and suggested that we find a possible solution right now.
This time, let’s take a look at the schedule of Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon.
After the operation of the election committee system, you chose Chungcheong, the casting boat for the presidential election, as your first regional schedule, right?
Yes, from today to the 1st of the next month, it is a 3 days 2 nights itinerary.
First of all, today’s destinations are Sejong and Daejeon.
At a meeting of the election committee presided over prior to departure, Candidate Yoon expressed his determination to start a victorious campaign 100 days before the presidential election.
[윤석열 / 국민의힘 대선 후보 : 역사를 보면 충청은 늘 캐스팅보트를 쥔 지역이고 대선의 승부처였습니다. 중원인 충청에서 정권교체의 신호탄 쏘아 올리는 것을 시작으로 승리의 100일 대장정을 나서고자 합니다.]
After expressing his will to complete the administrative capital and balanced regional development in Sejong, Candidate Yoon visits Daejeon to continue meeting with students and young people at Daedeok Research Complex.
Kim Byung-jun, who ran for Sejong-eul’s constituency in last year’s general election, is accompanied by permanent election chairman Kim Byeong-jun, and the ‘election leader without Kim Jong-in’ system is in full swing, but the noise inside and outside the party is still there.
Candidate Yoon also made an additional appointment today.
Among the co-election chairpersons, Lee Soo-jung, a professor at Kyonggi University, who was opposed by Lee Jun-seok, was named.
Representative Lee’s position is that he respected the nominee’s firm will to appoint him, but there are also concerns that it could lead to conflicts in the future.
Here, when lawyer Kwon Kyung-ae, author of the Black Book of the Fatherland, pointed out Rep. Jang Je-won as the ‘three doorknobs’ who opposed Kim’s recruitment,
Rep. Jang publicly protested that he would take legal action against the fact that he was driven behind the scenes to control personnel without evidence.
In response, Secretary-General Kwon Seong-dong met with YTN reporters and said that he had never objected to the recruitment of former Chairman Kim, and that Rep. Jang never dictated personnel affairs, and that he had fully explained to lawyer Kwon Kyung-ae over the phone.
On the 100th day of the presidential election, candidates from other political parties are busy, right?
Justice Party presidential candidate Shim Sang-jung presided over a meeting of the election committee at the National Assembly at 9:30 a.m., emphasizing that he would present a detailed blueprint for the third zone by the end of next month.
It is also a plan to promote cooperation with centrists, including candidate Ahn Cheol-soo of the People’s Party.
From 11 am, we had an on-site meeting at the Jewelry SL Anyang branch of the Metal Workers’ Union, which is on strike.
He condemned the company’s disguised business closure and met with the protesting workers and emphasized the banner of a country where the lives of workers are advanced countries.
At a debate held at the National Assembly at 9:30 am, candidate Ahn Cheol-soo of the People’s Party emphasized the vision as a science and technology hegemon in the era of the US-China war for hegemony and argued that science and technology experts should lead the next government.
Former Deputy Prime Minister Kim Dong-yeon, who ran for the 3rd zone and started the new party, had a series of meetings with reporters from the Gyeonggi area and members of the Youth Chamber.
Regarding cooperation in the third zone, they proposed a meeting with Shim Sang-jung and Ahn Cheol-soo, but argued that unification would not be easy as both candidates were one of the pillars of the political establishment.
In the midst of this, former Bareun Mirae Party leader Sohn Hak-gyu also cast a vote for the 20th presidential election.
He resigned from his party, the Minsaeng Party, and ran for the fourth time as an independent.
Ex-CEO Son explained the background of his candidacy because it is a ‘I am the only presidential election’ that directly appeals to the people with the feeling of crying alone in the wilderness, saying that there is no money or organization, but he came forward with the determination to change the imperial presidential system of winner-take-all losers.
So far, I am a YTN general manager in the National Assembly.
