Candidate Lee Jae-myung demanded a major overhaul of the party yesterday (20th) saying, “I will create a Democratic Party of Lee Jae-myung.” An emergency general meeting was held today. At this meeting, there is a discussion on whether the leadership of the election committee, including the election chairman Song Young-gil, will step back and hand over more authority to the candidates. In Power of the People, Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon met with former Chairman Kim Jong-in yesterday and today met with former Democratic Party Chairman Kim Han-Gil. There have been a lot of noises in the past, but today, the outline of the leader of Kim Jong-in, Kim Byeong-jun, and Kim Han-gil has become clearer. First, let’s go to the National Assembly, where the Democratic Party’s emergency assembly is being held.
Reporter Pil-Jun Kim, the National Assembly is still in progress.
Yes, it is an emergency general meeting of the members of the House of Representatives held on the direction of renewal of the predecessors.
At the National Assembly, there was talk of handing over a lot of power to the candidate, and if that happens, even the leadership of the previous generation will follow the will of this candidate.
Yesterday, candidate Lee Jae-myung said, “I will become the Democratic Party of Lee Jae-myung, not Lee Jae-myung of the Democratic Party.” This is the answer to that.
If so, can CEO Song Young-gil also step down from his predecessor?
It must also be said that it also depends on the will of Candidate Jae-myung Lee.
Chairman Song Young-gil also said that a new person could come in instead of him. Let’s hear it for yourself

Recently, there have been criticisms that the captain is not playing the role of a control tower at all. Was there a discussion about this at the National Assembly today?
Last week, Yang Jeong-cheol, former head of the Institute for Democracy, visited the National Assembly and criticized publicly, saying, “There are a lot of leisurely drinking parties among lawmakers, and they think about going out.”
Perhaps conscious of this point of view, CEO Song Young-gil even suggested that all lawmakers do a live broadcast at 9 pm every night.
He said that he would campaign for at least 10 minutes every day, and he even said that he would give a penalty and reflect it in the nominations based on this presidential campaign.
As reporter Pil-Jun Kim said, the will of the candidate has become the most important, what was your position?
Currently, candidate Lee is scheduled to tour the Chungcheong region, so a specific position has not been released.
When the conclusion of the National Assembly is reached, it seems that the position will be settled with it.
This candidate also mentioned the need for a strong renewal today. Let’s hear it.
