[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Lee Jae-woo = The People’s Power has amended the National Assembly Act to limit the privilege of non-arrest of members of the National Assembly. It is interpreted that the intention of the people is to neutralize Lee Jae-myung, a standing adviser to the Democratic Party, considering that running for the National Assembly by-election is for bulletproof use to avoid investigations into the suspicion of Daejang-dong preferential treatment and corporate card misuse.

With the Democratic Party occupying a majority of the seats in the National Assembly, it is unlikely that the amendment bill to be introduced by the people’s power will cross the threshold of the National Assembly. However, the debate between the ruling and opposition parties over the amendment to the National Assembly Act may have a certain impact on the votes for the June 1 local elections.

On the 15th, Kwon Seong-dong, floor leader of the People’s Power, proposed an amendment to the National Assembly Act to restrict the privilege of non-arrest of members of the National Assembly by posting a post on the social networking service (SNS) Facebook on the 15th with the title, ‘Lay down the bulletproof privilege of National Assembly members, and actively cooperate with the Democratic Party and Candidate Lee Jae-myung’. said he would

He emphasized, “There is a lot of public distrust in the privilege of non-arrest members of the National Assembly. Since the past, whenever a motion to arrest a member of the National Assembly is requested, the criticism of the ‘Bulletproof National Assembly’ has continued. Now it must be changed.”

He continued, “The system needs to be supplemented so that the privilege of non-arrest of members of the National Assembly is not misused as a ‘criminal privilege’, deviating from the purpose stipulated in the Constitution. “He said.

He said, “According to Article 26 of the current National Assembly Act, the motion to arrest a member of the National Assembly must be reported to the first plenary session and voted within 72 hours after 24 hours. He also pointed out that, as it is assumed and voted on, the arrest may be delayed if the agenda of the plenary session is not deliberately set.”

He continued, “I (1) relaxed the requirement to ‘vote within 48 hours after 24 hours’ from the time it was reported to the plenary session, and (2) made it ‘if it is not voted on, the arrest motion was passed’. He explained, “I will also switch from an anonymous vote to a write-in vote in order to perform my duties responsibly in front of the people.”

Floor leader Kwon said, “Recently, there are a lot of criticisms about Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung’s running for Incheon Gyeyang, that he is running for the privilege of non-arrest of a member of the National Assembly. The people of Gyeonggi-do and the people of Gyeonggi-do are not convinced that Seongnam Bundanggap was abandoned.”

He said, “Candidate Jae-myung Lee must respond to these criticisms from the public. If it is really unfair, then you should actively support our amendment bill.” “There is no reason or justification to oppose giving up the privilege. I look forward to the active cooperation of the Democratic Party.”
