Amid the vacancy of the National Assembly due to the failure of the ruling and opposition parties to agree on the composition of the National Assembly, documents piled up in the National Assembly’s agenda and archives were caught on the 19th.

On that day, the bills and archives of the National Assembly in Yeouido, Seoul were full of documents. This is due to the prolonged vacancy of the National Assembly as negotiations between the ruling and opposition parties to form members of the National Assembly in the second half of the year went round. As the vacancy of the National Assembly has been prolonged, the preparation process for the personnel hearings of the candidates for the Ministry of Health and Welfare and the Ministry of Education has also stopped.

The vacancy in the National Assembly has been going on for the third week in a four-fault battle between the ruling and opposition parties after the end of the term of the first half of the 21st National Assembly on the 29th of last month. A key issue in the negotiations is the chairperson of the Legislative and Judiciary Committee of the National Assembly.

The People’s Power, the ruling party, said that a person from the People’s Power should assume the position of the chairperson of the Judiciary in the second half, as was agreed upon during the first half of the National Assembly. In a commentary on the 17th, floor spokesperson Park Hyung-soo of People’s Power said, “As the agreement was signed a year ago, the chairman of the Judiciary should return to the people’s power and set up and operate a standing committee to take care of the people’s livelihood.” “(The Democratic Party) 170 “Please do not use these huge seats to hold back the new government, but please use them for the sake of the people and livelihoods,” he said.

The opposition party, the Democratic Party, said that the people’s power overturned the agreement during the legislative session of the so-called ‘examination and complete deprivation of the prosecution’s investigative authority’ and said it could not keep the contents of the original composition agreement. Park Hong-geun, floor leader of the Minjoo Party, said at the floor countermeasure meeting on the 14th, “The people’s power overturned the issue of separation of investigative and indictment rights by the prosecution, which was signed by the chairperson and floor representatives together in front of the public after the arbitration bill made by the chairperson was ratified at the general assembly of both parties. “The ruling party first broke promises and agreements and then only the opposition party insisted on ‘keeping the promise’,” he said.
