In an interview with KBS Radio’s ‘Choi Kyung-young’s Strongest Current Affairs’, Rep. Kwon said, “There are lawmakers in our party who support Yoon Seok-yeol, but they support Yoon Seok-yeol because they believe that a change of government is possible only through a person named Yun Seok-yeol. I do not support it because I have a close relationship with him.”
He continued, “That’s why I keep trying to instill a faction consciousness in this way, but those who support Yun Seok-yeol, and those who like Yun Seok-yeol, never create such a faction or have no faction consciousness.”Rep. Kwon said, “In the end, expressing political support is based on who represents our party and whether it is desirable for the country and the people to represent our country. Governor Won Hee-ryong, former lawmaker Yoo Seung-min, and former president Hong Jun-pyo, whom I worked with, are people with many more acquaintances, but that is a personal matter and another criterion must be applied when ultimately judging.” You have outstanding abilities and qualities, but those abilities and qualities and the support of the people are a separate matter.” He said, “The possibility of a regime change is high only when the people’s support is high, so it is only possible through Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, who has the highest public support from our perspective. I am supporting Yoon Seok-yeol because I judged it to be the case,” he said. Regarding the joining of some outsiders to the former president Yoon’s camp, he defended, “I know that I went in terms of providing a bridgehead within the party.” Regarding the general secretary-general’s suggestion of the possibility of disciplinary action, he said, “From the perspective of the general secretary, who is responsible for overall party discipline, he would have had no choice but to express his position.”
Regarding the timing of Yoon’s entry into the party with the people’s power, “Considering that President Lee Jun-seok said, ‘It’s a big deal,’ and Candidate Yoon also said, ‘The time for decision is approaching’, so his entry into the party was visible and that time is probably It won’t be very long.” He predicted, “No matter how late, I think I should join the party before the ‘Gyeongseon Bus’ departs, but I see there is a good chance even before that.”
Regarding the so-called ‘Choi Jae-hyung’ among lawmakers in the party, he said, “From their point of view, Chairman Choi Jae-hyung is the most powerful and most effective means of regime change, so I think we should respect their judgment.” It was done so that any presidential candidate could support and go to the camp to act. Wouldn’t that be democracy?”
Rep. Kwon said, “I will make the person I like and believe in a leader, and to make a president, that is the basics of democracy, but it is not appropriate to keep dividing them like this, Chin-yun vs Ban-yun.” Whether it’s a faction, a pro-yun, or a half-yun is the point of view of politicians.He also said, “If you become the candidate of our party through such a presidential election process, all members of our party will become one.” “If our party candidates have been selected, those who were in the camp at that time will continue to do so without disbanding the camp If it is empowered, that is genealogy, factional politics, and it is harmful,” he pointed out.
Regarding the evaluation that former President Yoon recruited so-called ‘Kim Jong-in’, he said, “There are three people who worked in the non-captain Kim Jong-in system, and they are originally from the national power. They are not the people who followed and made a career out of it.”
