As a result, Gyeongnam Province will be converted to the administrative branch (currently Ha Byeong-pil) by June 30 next year. This is the fifth agency system following the mid-term resignation of former governors Kim Hyuk-gyu, Kim Tae-ho, Kim Du-kwan, and Hong Jun-pyo.
The 2nd part of the Supreme Court (Chief Justice Lee Dong-won) dismissed the appeals of the special prosecutor and Governor Kim in the appeal against Governor Kim on the morning of the 21st, and sentenced him to two years in prison on November 6, last year, for obstruction of business such as computers. The judgment was quoted as it is. He also maintained his not guilty verdict of violating the Public Official Election Act.As a result, Governor Kim is detained and imprisoned along with the loss of his position as governor. The shock of the residents is even greater in that he is President Moon Jae-in’s closest aide and a person who is known for his reconsideration. The period of re-confinement is limited to the 77 days incarcerated at the time of the first trial in January 2019 and imprisoned until released on bail on April 17, 2019. It is a period. The general consensus is that, due to Governor Kim’s loss of governorship, setbacks in Gyeongnam Province seem inevitable.
Since his inauguration in July 2018, Governor Kim has ambitiously promoted various issues such as large-scale national projects such as the early construction of the southern inland railroad, which is his first pledge, as well as the establishment of a mega city in the southeast region and administrative integration of Busan, Ul and Gyeonggi.
At the press conference for the 3rd anniversary of his inauguration on June 28, he drew attention by announcing the direction and major achievements of the three-year course of the 7th popular election. It was read with the concept of summarizing the achievements before the Supreme Court’s sentencing.
Major achievements include the reflection of the government plan for the Southern Inland Railway (West Gyeongnam KTX), the implementation of the Changwon-Gimhae and Jinju-Sacheon public transportation discount system, the reflection of many such as the Changnyeong Daehapsandan Line in the 4th national railway network construction plan, smart manufacturing innovation, Fostering new service industries such as the IT industry and contents industry, converting eco-friendly businesses to respond to climate crisis, fostering smart agriculture and livestock industries, establishing a ‘local talent innovation platform’, an educational system for nurturing talents necessary for companies, and solving youth housing problems such as youth shared housing Leading and expanding experiential tourism were selected.
This year’s ‘Crisis into Opportunity! Under the slogan of ‘Bigger Gyeongnam, Bigger Future’, the three major national projects such as West Gyeongnam KTX, Smart Green Industrial Complex, and Jinhae New Port will be promoted, the southeast mega-city wide-area public transportation network will be visualized, the youth-led youth policy will be promoted, and smart talent will be intensively fostered and In order to respond to the global global economic order, preemptive and proactive response to the climate crisis has been set as a priority task and is working hard.
However, the prevailing view is that the driving force will drop considerably in the future due to Governor Kim’s absence.
In particular, the issue of regional administrative integration, led by Governor Kim, is expected to remain virtually at a standstill until the next governor is elected next year as the leading decision maker has disappeared.
In addition, difficulties are expected in the reflection of the government’s five-year plan for national and local road construction of the Namhae-Yeosu Undersea Tunnel (National Route 77), where the green light has recently been turned on, and the reflection of the national plan for the tourism development industry in the southern region.This is because, in the agency system, it is not easy to promote various new projects or make decisions on major issues, which inevitably leads to a contraction in the process.
An official from Gyeongsangnam-do said, “It may be difficult to launch a new project in the authority acting system, but I don’t think there will be any major setbacks in the overall process.”
