Ho-Young Joo, chairman of the Special Committee on Personnel Hearing of a Candidate, declared the meeting at 4:45 pm on the same day.
Chairman Joo said, “It is possible to proceed with the procedure even when the Democratic Party and Justice Party are absent, but it is difficult to proceed today because the Democratic Party’s cooperation is essential for the (Prime Minister) hearing to adopt the report at the end and go through the resolution process at the plenary session. That’s why I’m ending the meeting today.” “The next meeting will be held tomorrow at 10 am,” he said.
Chairman Joo said, “I hope that the secretaries of both parties will discuss further, and if there is any additional material that the candidate side can submit additionally from the materials requested by the Democratic Party and Justice Party, please do your best to submit it. If there are circumstances that cannot be submitted, please tell the opposition Please ask for your understanding.”
One candidate’s hearing was canceled in 39 minutes this morning. This is because a total of 8 hearing members, including 7 from the Democratic Party and 1 from the Justice Party, were absent from the 12 hearing members due to the problem of one candidate’s poor submission of data. Democratic Party lawmaker Kang Byung-won, who represented the hearing members of the Democratic Party and Justice Party, attended immediately after the hearing opened, delivered his protest with a speech and immediately left.
“I express my deep regret that the meeting was unilaterally opened despite earnest requests to reschedule the hearing on the premise of faithful submission of materials,” said Rep. Kang during the proceedings.
He continued, “It is the responsibility of all members of the National Assembly, regardless of the opposition, to thoroughly and thoroughly verify candidates for public office from the public eye level. He pointed out, “If the request for data submission and rescheduling of the schedule was rejected and not negotiated, it cannot go to the National Assembly.”

In response, National Power lawmaker Seong Il-jong responded, “I believe that one candidate has responded to the request for data relatively faithfully.” Rep. Seong pointed out that “there were 1,090 requests for data from members including the Democratic Party. It is about three or four times the hearings of the Prime Minister of the Moon Jae-in government.”
In particular, “We are demanding that all of the real estate transaction details of the deceased father and mother be presented. We are demanding the full salary details of the candidates who entered public office as a secretary in 1970 50 years ago. All business trip records from 1982 to 1997 He said, “I have no choice but to answer ‘none’ because it’s impossible.”
Rep. Kim Mi-ae of the same party said, “The hearing proposal for candidate Han Deok-soo was submitted to the National Assembly on the 7th, and the hearing must be completed by tomorrow (according to the law). It is right to be,” he said. She said, “It is difficult to understand the reasons for the absence of the Democratic Party and the Justice Party,” she said directly.
After the hearing of a candidate was suspended after 39 minutes, Rep. Seong, who is the secretary of the People’s Strength of the Personnel Hearing Special Committee, met twice with Rep. Kang, who is the secretary of the Democratic Party, to discuss continuing the hearing, but failed to reach a point of contact.

“It is regrettable that the meeting is being delayed due to insufficient data submission,” said Assemblyman Sung. He said, “The hearing of the Prime Minister nominee is connected to the inauguration of the new government,” he said.
On the other hand, it is unusual for the Prime Minister’s hearing to be canceled from the beginning of the first day. During the hearing of then Prime Minister Chung Hong-won during the Park Geun-hye administration, there was a case where the data submission problem caused lameness, but this happened late in the afternoon of the second day.
