The filibuster of the amendment to the Prosecutor’s Office Act, which started right after the plenary session opened at 5 pm that day, continued for nearly 7 hours until midnight the next day.

People’s Power Minority Leader Kwon Seong-dong took the lead and discussed for 2 hours and 3 minutes, followed by Democratic Party member Jong-min Kim (1 hour 15 minutes), People’s Power Kim Woong (2 hours 51 minutes), and Democratic Party lawmakers Min-seok Ahn (37 minutes), taking turns.

The People’s Power focused on opposing the legislative action through the filibuster on this day.

Kwon Seong-dong, floor leader, said, “The reason the Democratic Party put an unreasonable number in the period of taking over the government is because they were afraid that the reality of corruption during the past five years, which had been barely blocked by the presidential power, would be exposed in front of the public. Are you afraid? This is the background that gave birth to the Inspection and Completion Act with the intention to pass on the damage to the public and escape from the crime.”

Rep. Kim Woong also said, “In addition, why is the Democratic Party collapsing the criminal justice system that it has maintained for 70 years as if it were a military operation? Advanced prosecution, separation of investigation and prosecution, everything is a lie.” It is to prevent the Ministry of Resources’ nuclear power plant corruption case and Ulsan mayor’s election interference case.”

On the other hand, the Democratic Party emphasized the legitimacy of the legislation.

Rep. Kim Jong-min emphasized, “All investigations should be under control.” He emphasized, “If we stop the political fight and discuss what to improve for just one year, we can open the path to democratic justice.”

Rep. Ahn Min-seok criticized the prosecution’s investigation of bribes targeting the late Kim Jae-yoon, a former member of the New Politics Alliance for Democracy, as “a planned investigation by the political prosecution” and said, “(Political prosecution) We are preparing for retaliation. We will fight together with the people in this era of barbarism.”

The Democratic Party plans to open a new extraordinary session of the National Assembly on the 30th and hold a plenary session to vote on the amendment to the Prosecutor’s Office Act to respond to the strategy of delaying bill processing through the filibuster of the people’s power.

As a result, a fierce battle over public opinion is expected to escalate until the weekend.

The Democratic Party plans to convene an extraordinary meeting again next week to deal with the amendment to the Criminal Procedure Act, which is another ‘complete inspection’ bill.

Considering the second filibuster of the people’s power, the passing date of the amendment to the Criminal Procedure Act is expected to be the 3rd of next month.
