Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (August 29, 2016)
1. As the country’s main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea elected Choo Mi-ae as a new leader, the relationship between the ruling and opposition parties are more likely to ‘confront’ rather than ‘cooperate.’ As Choo vowed she takes a tougher stance on the THAAD deployment and amendment of Sewol Special Act, the move is likely to further to weigh down the party’s relationship with Saenuri Party.
The Minjoo party was not like an opposition party before. I hope it will become a true opposition party this time.
2. Ahn Cheo-soo, the former leader of People’s Party of South Korea, declares that he will run for president next year. Ahn says, ‘he is ready to give his all by keeping the order in his heart to change Korea politics, people’s lives and the Korean government with People’s Party as the center.
I have always felt that he should change himself first before he tries to change something.
