The so-called ‘Election Super Week’ is coming to an end, in which the ruling and opposition presidential candidates declare their candidacy one after another. The Democratic Party of Korea, which has confirmed the primary election schedule for September as scheduled, will receive preliminary candidates registration for three days from the 28th and begin the two-week ‘preliminary race’ in earnest. Gyeonggi Province governor Lee Jae-myung and former Democratic Party leader Lee Nak-yeon are also expected to declare their candidacy.
In the opposition, Chairman of the Board of Audit and Inspection Choi Jae-hyung resigned on the 28th and started to warm up ahead of the presidential election. On the 29th, with former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol’s official announcement of his candidacy for the presidency scheduled for the 29th, runners belonging to the People’s Power are moving faster.
○ ‘Awareness Wars’ among runners
The governor, who had the highest approval rating in the passport, decided to register as a candidate on the 30th, the last day of the preliminary candidate registration, and declare the candidacy through a video on the 1st of the following month. Former President Lee also first registers as a candidate and is reviewing the schedule to declare his candidacy in early July or the second week. Rep. Kim Doo-kwan also announced that he would declare his candidacy on July 1. A total of nine candidates are on the ring, including former Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun, former Justice Minister Choo Mi-ae, Rep. Park Yong-jin Lee Kwang-jae, Gangwon-do Governor Choi Moon-soon, and Chungnam-do Governor Yang Seung-jo, who have already declared their candidacy. As the de facto competition for recognition begins, the competition for messages of major candidates is also becoming clearer. This governor has started to break away from the image of a ‘Kkondae Party’ by targeting ‘young people’. At the inauguration ceremony of the first Gyeonggi-do Youth Participation Organization using the virtual reality (VR) platform ‘Metaverse’ on the 26th, he said, “Unlike my youth, there are very few opportunities now. That is why the young people are losing hope and are angry at the injustice,” he said. “As an older generation, I am sorry.” On the same day, former CEO Lee attacked ‘women’. At the Women’s Plaza in Dongjak-gu, Seoul, former CEO Lee held the inaugural meeting of the ‘New Welfare Women’s Forum’, a think tank for women’s policy development, and declared support from more than 52,000 people, including former and current women’s chairpersons of the Democratic Party, and regional and basic female lawmakers. received. Former Prime Minister Jeong, who had previously declared his candidacy, visited the Korea Exchange with Rep. Lee Kwang-jae on the 28th to announce his pledges related to the stock market. As a de facto unification move before the preliminary election, the anti-Lee Jae-myung front seems to be in full swing. Both candidates said, “We plan to jointly participate in major events in the future.” Rep. Park Yong-jin is also considering visiting a venture startup as the first step after registering as a candidate.
○ Prelude to ‘War of Platform for Presidential Election’
In the opposition, as the main movements of the presidential candidates continue this week, the battle for the power of the people and candidates outside the power of the people to take the lead in the opposition presidential election platform is expected to begin in earnest. Director Choi, who emerged as a new runner-up, expressed his resignation on the 28th and began his career as a presidential candidate. Director Choi is expected to announce the cause of his resignation with the intention of ‘letting down the position so that the Board of Audit and Inspection can be guaranteed political neutrality and function properly’. However, considering the ‘controversy about going straight to the presidential election’ towards him, he plans to draw a draft of the presidential election under the water for the time being and weigh the timing of the people’s entry into the party. An official from Choi’s side said in a phone call with the Dong-A Ilbo on the 27th, “If the government had guaranteed an audit without sanctuary, there would have been no interest in Choi.” He said, “I’m quitting because I have no choice but to quit.”
Former President Yoon will officially announce his candidacy for president on the 29th at the Yun Bong-gil Memorial Hall in Maheon, Seocho-gu, Seoul. During the weekend, former President Yoon concentrated on writing a candidacy declaration containing keywords such as ‘restoration of fairness and common sense’, ‘constitutional spirit’, and patriotism. On the 27th, he toured the memorial hall and finally checked the movement lines and the atmosphere of the field on the day of the candidacy declaration.
People’s Power candidates are also entering the presidential campaign. Blessed Rep. Jun-pyo Hong held a vision presentation titled ‘Listen to the people of Korea’s future vision’ at the Small and Medium Business Center in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul on the 29th and puts a light on former President Yoon’s appearance. Former lawmaker Yoo Seung-min, who has already declared his candidacy, will attend the 19th anniversary ceremony of the 2nd Battle of Yeonpyeong on the 29th. Hwang Kyo-ahn, former chairman of the United Future Party, will hold a publication commemorative party at Yonsei University on the 30th to formalize the presidential campaign. Jeju-do Governor Won Hee-ryong will launch ‘Hope Oreum’, a support group for incumbent lawmakers, early next month. Assemblyman Ha Tae-kyung also decided to announce the economic pledge by holding a ‘K economy concert’ soon. Ahn Cheol-soo, chairman of the People’s Party, focuses on ‘security steps’ to visit the battlefield in Cheorwon, Gangwon-do.
