On the 8th, as the power of the people formed a new leadership, the system of Emergency Response Committee Chairman Jin-seok Jeong ended his six-month term. Chairman Jeong Jin-seok said in a speech at the party convention held at KINTEX in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do that day, “I am now going down from the mound after finishing my role as a relief pitcher.” A party official said, “It should be recognized that Chairman Chung has led the party stably without major accidents.”
Chairman Chung took the mound after the collapse of former CEO Lee Jun-seok’s system in October last year. At the time, the people’s power was experiencing internal conflicts and a leadership vacuum due to former CEO Lee’s suspension from party membership, acting representative Kwon Seong-dong and the resignation of top members, former CEO Lee’s request for a temporary disposition , and the fall of non-captain Joo Ho-young. Chairman Chung used the phrase “delicious” when he resigned as vice chairman of the National Assembly and took over as chairman of the emergency committee.
During the ‘Not Captain Jeong Jin-seok’ period, the party’s approval rating of the people’s power was greater than the Democratic Party in several polls. A one-on-one meeting with Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung was not held. Chairman Chung said, “The reality of not being able to stop the legislative tyranny of the Democratic Party, which prides itself on its strength with a majority of seats, was truly brutal.”
Immediately after launching the emergency committee, Chairman Chung reorganized 42 out of 68 accident party member council areas, and visited the site about 20 times during the six-month non-capital period. In addition, the leadership election method, which used to be 70% of the party member vote and 30% of the public opinion poll, was changed for the first time in 18 years, to 100% of the party member vote and a runoff system . present them. In his speech at the party’s convention that day, he said the turnout, which reached a record high of 55.1%, was “an explosion in party spirit.”
