Recently, President Yoon Seok-yeol re-emphasized the three reform tasks of pension, labor, and education through a meeting on national issues.
Most of the law needs to be amended through the National Assembly, but it is expected that it will not be easy to cross the threshold of the National Assembly because the political situation is tightly blocked, such as budget conflicts.

President Yoon Seok-yeol emphasized reform in the three main areas of education, labor, and pension at a meeting on national affairs on the 15th, saying that reform is not an option, but a necessity.
The three main tasks emphasized from the beginning of my inauguration can be summarized as labor flexibility, improving educational competitiveness, and a sustainable pension.

President Yoon emphasized that it must be done, but the variable is the political situation of the ruling and opposition parties.
This is because most of them are legislation or amendments to the law, and it is difficult to pass the National Assembly without the cooperation of the opposition.
However, as seen in the recent conflict between the two parties over the budget bill, the ruling and opposition parties are in a position not to manage the country properly for even a year, let alone cooperate.
In addition, the conflict between the opposition parties is getting steeper as the blades of circumstances targeting the opposition party and the former government continue, from the investigation of Lee Jae-myung, representative of the Democratic Party, to the an investigation into the suspicion of distortion of statistics by the Audit and Inspection Board.

In fact, regarding President Yoon’s three major reform tasks, the ruling party urged the opposition parties to participate, saying that reforms must be completed by law.

Instead, the Democratic Party drew attention to the fact that their own reforms were a futile illusion that left the opposition and the people out, and that they should start with communication and governance.

President Yoon expressed a strong will to promote the ‘three reform tasks’, saying that politics and the economy would be ruined if reforms were not carried out.
In the end, it is expected that the relationship with the Democratic Party, which holds the majority of seats, will be the biggest variable, and the general view is that difficulties will be inevitable as the political situation gets twisted as she was twisted.
