Conflict between five-term lawmaker Ho-Young Joo, former chairman of the Blitz and Representative Lee Yong-Ho, who came to power at the end of last year.
A landslide victory was expected for the Yoon Hak-kwan, a key group of close aides to President Yun Seok-yeol, the alleged lawmaker Joo, supported by the so-called Yun Shim, but the result was unexpected.
In a vote of 106 members, the state legislator barely passed the majority with 61 votes, and this member received 42 votes, with a difference of only 19 votes between the two candidates.
In fact, the expression on the face of floor leader Joo, who was expecting to be elected, was heavy.

“I think it is a result of reflecting the will of the party to give it a healthy voice, such as for my second appointment.”
Earlier, Representative Lee Yong-ho strongly criticized former floor leader Kwon Seong-dong in his political opinion statement, saying he was pushing for the election of Joo Ho-young.
“I don’t know if it’s Yoon-shim or Kwon-shim. I don’t think there is such a thing or not. These days, even elementary school class president elections don’t follow the will of the teacher.”
Regarding Lee’s unexpected propaganda, a senior party member evaluated it as a “rebellion against Yoon Hak Kwan” in a word in a phone call with MBC, and a first-time lawmaker said, “The evaluation of Yoon Hak Kwan, the presidential office, and the recent chaos within the party all combined. Interpreted as “.
Contrary to President Yoon Seok-yeol’s official position that he will not interfere in party affairs, there is dissatisfaction with the pro-yun core who insist on making a unilateral choice with ‘yun-sim’ and the unreasonable change of a person who is not jointly expressed captain. .
In response, one pro-Yun-gye lawmaker downplayed its meaning, saying it was just a reaction against the ‘Ho-Young Joo theory’, and Representative Jang Je-won, a key member of the pro-Yun-gye system, quietly.
“What do I do with that… No, I have to reflect the legislators’ votes well and run the house.”
As the vote confirmed that the opposition within the party was not formidable, the leader of the floor, Ho-young Joo, had to undertake the difficult task of dealing with a huge opposition while resolving conflicts within the party.
