Lee Jae-myung and Yoon Seok-yeol, two candidates, are increasing their dominance within the party.
Candidate Lee brought the 2030 generation to the fore, and Candidate Yoon selected Chairman Kim Byung-jun as the ‘one-top’ rather than former Vice Chairman Kim Jong-in.

Candidate Jae-myung Lee came to the fore with young men in light shirts without the existing party colors at the inauguration ceremony of the Gwangju election committee.
This is in contrast to the fact that I stood on the podium 4 weeks ago with primary contenders and high-ranking lawmakers in blue jumpers.
“(Members resigned) You made an unconventional young captain in which the 2030 youth become the leaders.”
Over the weekend, Rep. Yoon Geon-young, who is a double-mind of President Moon Jae-in, joined as chief of staff, and Rep. Oh Young-hoon, a close aide to former representative Lee Nak-yeon, joined as chief of staff.
Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon also virtually completed the establishment of a senior leadership system led by him.
Byung-jun Kim, who was recruited through opposition from former Chairman Kim Jong-in, volunteered to hold a press conference every day, and started the campaign in earnest.
Candidate Yoon is in the mood to not be bound by the presence or absence of former Chairman Kim Jong-in, despite some concerns.
“I plan to move according to the schedule that was planned by many people (the previous captain) having a discussion and gathering the middle ground.”
However, controversy continued over the resignation of former lawmaker Kim Seong-tae, who was convicted in the second trial on charges of ‘preferential hiring of daughters’ after being selected as an executive in the election.
The Democratic Party criticized it, saying, “It is irresponsible that candidate Yoon, who was then the prosecutor general, ‘cannot remember’.”

“I hope you can answer whether it is the fairness and common sense of Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon to turn a blind eye to the crimes around me.”
The People’s Power focused on Lee’s defense of his nephew, a former ‘friendship murder’ criminal.
“As I said before, the presuppositional thinking, judgment standards, and violent nature are not so easily corrected.”
As the ruling and opposition leaders’ systems have been overhauled, the verification offensive against the opponent has also greatly increased.
