As the People’s Strength Ethics Committee postponed the disciplinary review of Lee Jun-seok, the party’s leader, who was accused of ‘teacher of sexual harassment and destruction of evidence’ by two weeks, voices of dissatisfaction are emerging within the party. This is because the Ethics Committee hastily pushed the disciplinary process while the police investigation is ongoing, and the lengthy process does not help to resolve the chaos within the party.

People’s Strength lawmaker Ha Tae-kyung also appeared on CBS radio’s ‘Kim Hyun-jung’s News Show’ on the same day and criticized the ethics committee for ‘politics of disgrace’. Rep. Ha emphasized, “The ethics committee is engaged in self-harm politics,” and emphasized that “the ethics committee meeting itself is meaningless as it has no choice but to draw conclusions based on the results of the police investigation.”
Rep. Ha emphasized the fact that the People’s Power is a generational coalition party and said, “The two groups in 2030 and 6070 have slightly different personalities. CEO Lee said that 2030 mainly supports him, and the existing loyal supporters have increased unfavorable feelings toward him.” He said, “Because CEO Lee’s leadership style is different from the past, conflicts arise. .
