The People’s Power Presidential Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon canceled all public schedules on the 4th and had time to ponder to decide on a reorganization plan for the Election Countermeasures Committee. Candidate Yoon is said to have made up his mind to disband the election committee and leave only the smallest fleet headquarters until the election. It seems that Kim Jong-in, chairman of the general election, will also follow the process of dismissal. About two months before the presidential election, his leadership was also put to the test of how effectively candidate Yoon, who had called for the disbandment of the predecessor, could effectively resolve the conflict with the party.
It is reported that candidate Yoon stayed at his home in Seocho-gu, Seoul on the same day, and met with members of the party, including members of the party, to gather opinions on the renewal of the predecessor. The day before, while General Election Commissioner Kim Jong-in pulled out the card for a total renewal of the election committee, including the resignation of six key general general managers except for himself, candidate Yoon was reported to have been thinking about how to downgrade the existing members of the election committee to the whole country, leaving the working-level election headquarters behind. It is said that the appointment of the head of the fleet headquarters is also in the final stage. Candidate Yoon is scheduled to hold a press conference at the Yeouido office on the 5th and announce the plan for the operation of the election committee.
Chairman Kim went to work at the Gwanghwamun office that day and met with reporters and said, “I am waiting for the candidate to make a decision.” “The sooner (reform) the better. By the end of today, candidate Yoon will probably decide (the plan to reorganize the election committee) almost.” However, when asked if he had talked to Candidate Yoon directly, he replied, “I have already done everything yesterday, but there is nothing more I can do.” He said, “I don’t know yet” as to whether Lee Jun-seok, who is being held accountable for his conflict with Candidate Yoon, will return to his predecessor.
Some observers also observe that an all-out conflict will be inevitable if Candidate Yoon wants to reorganize the predecessor team including Chairman Kim. In an interview with the Dong-A Ilbo on the same day, Kim Byung-jun, chairman of the permanent election, said, “Candidate Yoon thinks that the ‘higher’ rather than the general manager, that is, the general manager with greater responsibility, should resign first.” As Candidate Yoon is very dissatisfied with Chairman Kim’s renewal announcement that took place the day before without his consent, it means that a plan to break up with Chairman Kim cannot be ruled out. In this case, as an alternative to Chairman Kim, it is also being discussed that Rep. Hong Jun-pyo joins as the general election chairman.
The position of Chairman Lee, who has been demanding his resignation from within the party, is also controversial. President Lee continued his sharp remarks on the same day, targeting Secretary-General Kwon Seong-dong of Candidate Yun, without revealing any particular position on his whereabouts. When asked by a reporter who said that ‘President Kwon can resign if necessary,’ he replied, “It’s not an expression of a position, it’s something.” As Lee, who was the first to insist on the need for a reorganization of the senior leadership team, only if there is a complete dismantling level renewal, then the justification for his return can be established. It is known that Kwon will step down from the post of secretary-general separately from the announcement of the reform plan for Candidate Yoon. This is a plan to pave the way for Candidate Yoon in a situation where he was designated as the so-called ‘Hack-Kwan Yoon’ (a key person on the candidate’s side).
