The Yoon Seok-yeol administration’s first budget bill eventually passed the two-day deadline for processing in the National Assembly plenary. The ruling and opposition parties had been debating the motion to dismiss Public Administration and Security Minister Lee Sang-min until the morning of the same day, and ultimately failed to hold a plenary meeting to pass the budget bill .

The Speaker of the National Assembly, Kim Jin-pyo (pictured) said in a statement on the day, “The budget bill set by the constitution was not completed within the court process period for next year’s national housekeeping review. I apologize to the people,” he apologized. He also announced that he would hold a two-day plenary meeting on the 8th and 9th to process the budget bill within the normal National Assembly.

The opposition and opposition parties, who continued their conflict on the brink, agreed in principle to pass the budget bill within the regular session of the National Assembly, which ends on the 9th. However, the difference in the situation regarding ‘Yoon Seok-yeol’s Table Budget’ is obvious. In addition, as the proposal to dismiss Public Administration and Security Minister Lee Sang-min and the state affairs investigation to find out the truth of the Itaewon Halloween disaster are running in parallel, significant difficulties are expected in handling the budget bill in the regular National Assembly.

○ Ultimately, the budget bill passed the deadline

People’s Power Joo Ho-young, floor leader, and Democratic Party floor leader Park Hong-geun met twice in the morning and afternoon on the 2nd, presided over by National Assembly Speaker Kim Jin-pyo, but the a budget bill that was not held in plenary. In the end, Chairman Kim issued a de facto apology for missing the deadline for processing the budget bill in the afternoon on the same day and announced that he would hold a plenary session on the 8th and 9th to process the bill budget. Chairman Kim said, “Since the implementation of the ‘National Assembly Progress Act’ in 2014, all budget bills have been processed within the regular session of the National Assembly, even if the statutory deadline for budget bills met. This time, too, it must be dealt with within the normal session of the National Assembly,” he stressed.

After the National Assembly’s Moving Forward Act was introduced, the opposition parties and opposition parties processed all budget bills until the end of the regular National Assembly, including those for 2014 and 2020, when the legal deadline was reached. However, this year, as the opposition parties face each other on every issue, there are comments that the budget bill could be omitted due to difficulties in revising the budget bill.

As the Special Committee on the Budget and Accounts in the National Assembly, which discusses the budget bill, came to an end at 2:00 pm Representative Park Nae-nae met with reporters after the meeting that afternoon and he said, “Beginning today, the heads of the policy committees of both parties have decided to continue consulting to resolve the issue.” The floor leaders suggested that the issue should be resolved and dealt with. within the regular session of the National Assembly.”

However, on this day, the opposition and opposition parties continued the fight, blaming each other for failing to meet the legal deadline for next year’s budget bill. People’s Power Kim Mi-ae, spokesperson for the House of Representatives, said, “The Democratic Party does not seem to have any intention of folding the political battle card for the impeachment motion of ‘Bulletproof Lee Jae-myung’ while abandoning the budget. bill.” On the other hand, Park’s representative criticized in the general meeting of lawmakers, “Next year’s budget plan, which amounts to 640 trillion won, and the public livelihood bill, which is in urgent crisis, all stopped in front of the ruling party. ‘Bangtan Lee Sang-min’.”

○ Waiting for the motion to dismiss Lee next week

Chairman Kim did not accept the opposition’s request to hold a plenary meeting on the 5th to deal with the motion to dismiss Minister Lee. However, the date of the plenary meeting was set on the 8th and 9th, so that it could be processed within the normal National Assembly. According to the National Assembly Act, a proposal to dismiss a member of the Council of State is automatically reported to the first plenary meeting after the proposal, and must be voted on within 72 hours after 24 hours of the time which is reported. Having reported the motion to dismiss to the plenary on the 8th, it can be dealt with at the plenary on the 9th.

The people’s power defines the dismissal proposal as ‘for bulletproof use’ to CEO Lee Jae-myung, and plans not to participate in the state affairs investigation into the Itaewon disaster if it is passed by the National Assembly. An official from the People’s Power said, “The fact that the chairman has set the dates for the plenary meeting on the 8th and 9th means that he will eventually (process) the motion to dismiss.” He did.

The basic policy of the Democratic Party is to process the impeachment motion at the plenary meeting on the 9th, but it appears that it is considering a plan to propose an immediate impeachment prosecution. Representative Park Nae-nae met with reporters that day and said, “We will hold a general meeting of lawmakers in the middle of next week to make a final decision.” ) There is no change in the situation to end the reprimand.”
