Jung Mi-kyung, etc. “Does kicking out the party leader help the general election?”… Lee support shooting
Jo Hae-jin “The burden of making a decision before the investigation result”… Yoon Hee-seok’s “willingness to discipline the ethics committee”
Disputes within the party continue on the 24th as the People’s Strength Ethics Committee postponed the decision on disciplinary action related to CEO Lee Jun-seok’s ‘teacher of sexual harassment and destruction of evidence’ until next month.
Persons close to CEO Lee checked the ethics committee by saying that they should wait for the police investigation, while there are many people who emphasize the necessity of disciplinary action against CEO Lee.
First of all, CEO Lee, who is a party, posted a one-line article on his SNS this morning, quoting General George Patton, a war hero of the US military during World War II, “When in doubt, ATTACK!” raised
It is interpreted as a reaction to the public conflict with Bae Hyun-jin, the top member of the Ethics Committee, which was intertwined with the disciplinary situation, and the offensive against himself from inside and outside the party.
Representative Lee and close members of the party continued to fire with support.
Supreme Commissioner Jeong Mi-kyung, a former prosecutor, appeared on MBC radio and said, “The word ‘discipline’ is actually a judgment based on a certain outcome when it comes out, not the ethics committee itself. I don’t understand if it’s the right thing to do or not,” he said.
Jeong also said, “If we do not become a majority party in the general election two years later, we have not achieved a perfect change of government. I’m worried about everything,” he said.
Rep. Kim Hyung-dong, who serves as the party’s chief spokesman, also pointed out on YTN radio, “Many people in the party had an opinion that it would not be desirable for an ethics committee to be held after seeing the results of the investigation. Wasn’t this part started hastily?”
In response to the question of whether the disciplinary decision should be delayed if the investigation results are not released by July 7, he criticized the Ethics Committee’s decision to initiate the disciplinary process, saying, “It was an unreasonable start in the first place.”
Next, the ethics committee raised a question about the procedural legitimacy of the decision to additionally initiate disciplinary proceedings against Kim Cheol-geun, director of the political affairs office, who was a reference to the alleged destruction of evidence.
Third-term lawmaker Hae-jin Cho, who became the vice chairman of the Party Innovation Committee, told BBS Radio, “In a situation where the facts of sexual harassment itself are not yet revealed even at the police level, the Ethics Committee will take disciplinary action on suspicion of destruction of evidence, which is a follow-up action. It would be very burdensome to make such an unprecedented decision if it leads to the party leader,” he said.
Regarding the controversy over Kim’s ‘700 million won memorandum’, he said, “It is a problem when it is connected to a political act, especially the suspicions that are being raised now, but can it be a problem in itself if it is an act between private parties?” “Securing solid grounds If disciplinary action is taken in a situation that fails to do so, political and legal repercussions can be huge.”
On the other hand, former spokeswoman Yoon Hee-seok, who was active in the presidential election campaign during the March 9 presidential election, showed a difference in temperature by expressing the view that “the ethics committee initiating disciplinary procedures is itself a ‘guilty'”.
Former spokesman Yoon, who appeared on CBS Radio that day, said that he expects to receive at least a ‘warning’ or more disciplinary decision against Lee.
In particular, despite the fact that the Ethics Committee postponed the decision on CEO Lee to July 7, he said, “If you just go to disciplinary action, there may be a backlash in the middle of why you didn’t hear your call. It is an expression of the will to do it.”
