The People’s Power Central Ethics Committee discusses the disciplinary action against Rep. Kim Seong-won, who caused controversy by saying ‘I wish it rained more’ at the recovery site from the flood on the 22nd. There is also the possibility of additional disciplinary action against former CEO Lee Jun-seok.

The Ethics Committee will hold a plenary meeting of the Ethics Committee on Rep. Kim in Room 228 of the main building of the National Assembly from 7 p.m. on the same day. An Ethics Committee official said in a phone call with News 1, “At the meeting, it will be decided whether or not to start the disciplinary procedure for Rep. Kim Seong-won.”

It was reported that Kim would not attend the meeting. The ethics committee explained that Rep. Kim is not eligible to attend because he is discussing whether to initiate disciplinary action.

Earlier, Ho-Young Joo, chairman of the emergency response committee, appeared on KBS News 9 and said, “Lee Yang-hee, chairman of the People’s Strength Ethics Committee, convened a meeting of the ethics committee on the 22nd. I have referred it to the Ethics Committee ex officio.” He further emphasized, “There will be no case where the Ethics Committee will be fussy about our party members’ issues.”

Interest is growing as to whether additional disciplinary action against former President Lee Seok-yeol, who has recently been publicly pouring harsh words toward President Yoon Seok-yeol and pro-Yun-gye lawmakers, will be discussed.

The Ethics Committee issued a statement on the 19th without prior notice and said, “Regardless of rank, we will strictly deliberate on party members who undermine the party’s prestige, insult and defame others, and promote sectarian conflict.”

It is known that Lee Yang-hee, chairman of the ethics committee, collected the opinions of the committee members the day before (18th) before issuing the statement. It is also reported that the Ethics Committee recently received comments from inside and outside the party that Lee’s words and actions were “out of bounds”.

In response, former CEO Lee reacted unpleasantly, saying, “Fuhahaha,” “the ethical standards are a rubber band.”
