Kwan-seok Yoon and Seong-man Lee reported the motion to arrest… Democrats are complicated inside
Two years ago, the motion to arrest independent lawmakers Kwan-seok Yoon and Seong-man Lee, who were asked for arrest warrants for the Democratic Party’s “suspect of money envelopes at the convention” was reported to the plenary session of the National Assembly today (30th ).
The vote is expected to take place at the first plenary meeting next month, and even within the Democratic Party, the debate between factions is on fire.

The proposal to arrest Yoon Kwan-seok and Lee Seong-man, who left the Democratic Party voluntarily due to suspicion of money envelopes in the convention, was reported to the full meeting of the National Assembly.
The motion to arrest is expected to be voted on on the 12th, when the first plenary meeting will be held next month.
As the motion to arrest is passed with a majority in favor of the presence of the majority of current members, interest is gathered in the Democratic Party’s vote, which is the majority of seats.
However, unlike the ‘veto’ motion to arrest Democratic Party lawmaker Noh Woong-rae, previously accused of bribery, and CEO Lee Jae-myeong, who was surrounded by doubts such as preferential treatment for the Daejang-dong development project, emphasis is placed on the possibility of ‘approval’.
In particular, bitter voices are bubbling up screaming that the world should break away from the so-called ‘Bangtan Party’ image.
<조응천 / 더불어민주당 의원(BBS 라디오)> “First of all, there is a big burden on the image of the Bangtan party. Overall, it seems that there is no such thought at all, let’s protect it because it was our colleague.”
On the other hand, some of the pro-Myeong faction are suggesting a vote of dissent, introducing the ‘unfair prosecution investigation’ that has been demanding all along.
It seems that there is also a calculation that should be kept in mind in the future when the motion to arrest Lee is passed to the National Assembly again.
As the factional conflict over the direction of the party’s innovation escalated again with the impeachment vote, the Democratic Party fell into a difficult dilemma regardless of which choice it made.
In addition, there was noise over the replacement of the permanent chairman of the Democratic Party share, and even controversy about the seat, such as stopping the election of the chairman just before the plenary session.
