National Assembly committee to decide on adopting report for PM nominee


A National Assembly committee is set to decide today on whether to accept a report on the results of prime minister nominee Lee Nak-yon’s confirmation hearing. Headed by a lawmaker from the ruling Democratic Party of Korea, the 13-member panel will discuss the matter from two p.m. Korea time. If the committee decides to adopt the report, Lee’s nomination will be put up for a full floor vote during a regular session scheduled for next Monday, May 29th. Cooperation from the opposition parties is key as the appointment requires consent from a majority of lawmakers in the 300-seat assembly. The ruling Democratic Party of Korea is a couple of dozen seats short of that.




인사청문특별위원회는 이낙연 국무총리 후보자 인사청문회 심사경과 보고서 채택 문제를 논의할 예정입니다. 더불어민주당 의원이 이끄는 13명의 청문위원은 한국시간으로 오늘 오후 2시부터 이 건에 대해 논의할 예정입니다. 위원회가 청문보고서를 채택하면 다음주 월요일인 29일 본회의 때 인준안 표결에 들어가게 됩니다. 국무총리 임명은 총 300명의 재적의원 중 과반수가 찬성해야 하기 때문에 야당의 협조가 필수적입니다. 여당인 더불어민주당은 과반에서 약 30석이 부족합니다.
