People’s Power Presidential Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol will have a luncheon with party elders in Seoul on the 2nd.
Initially, the second meeting of the election committee was scheduled this morning, but as CEO Jun-seok Lee completely canceled the official schedule and went undercover, the meeting was not held.
At a luncheon with the party’s standing advisors at a restaurant in Yeouido on the same day, Candidate Yoon is expected to seek advice on the recent difficulties in the appointment of the Election Committee and the conflict with Lee Jun-seok.
Earlier on the same day, Candidate Yoon attended the National Breakfast and Prayer Meeting at a hotel in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, and then met with British Ambassador to Korea Simon Smith and British Ambassador to North Korea Colin James Crooks.
Ambassador Crooks has served as the British ambassador to North Korea since 2018, but he is staying in the UK as the UK temporarily closed its embassy in Pyongyang in May last year due to concerns about Corona 19.
CEO Lee, who completely canceled the official schedule due to a conflict with Candidate Yoon, has been in hiding for the third day.
