Lee “If Article 80 of the Party Constitution would not be more controversial” 朴 “It is unfortunate that the low turnout”

Candidate Jae-myung Lee, the party’s runner-up in the Democratic Party of Korea, said, “I will do my best with a low attitude for the rest of the schedule.”

Candidate Lee met with reporters at the end of the Jeonbuk joint speech on the afternoon of the same day and said, “I am grateful for always showing undeserved support.”

Regarding the controversy over the demand for the deletion of Article 80 of the Party Constitution, Lee also said, “It is about corruption cases such as bribery and illegal political funds. “It doesn’t really mean much,” he said, adding, “I hope there will be no more controversy over this.”

On the 19th, the Democratic Party’s Party Committee decided to maintain Article 80, Paragraph 1 of the Party Constitution, ‘suspending party office upon indictment’, but let the party committee make a decision on relief, not the existing ethics judge.

In response, some strong supporters insist that the Yoon Seok-yeol administration’s ‘political retaliation investigation’ and demand that Article 80 of the Party Constitution be deleted altogether.

Candidate Lee said, “I’ll think about it a bit more” in response to Candidate Park Yong-jin’s proposal to “jointly declare the right to set up the Democratic Party with the core of dropping the nomination rights and breaking up with the malicious fandom.”

Candidate Park said, “It’s a pity that the final turnout in Jeollabuk-do today is in the low 30%. I’m afraid that Honam might be showing disappointment to the Democratic Party.” I am very sorry and sorry,” he said.

Candidate Park further emphasized, “There are still votes left by delegates in Seoul and Gyeonggi and across the country, but I urge you not to leave it indifferent, but to show affectionate rebuke to the Democratic Party by participating in the vote.”

In the Jeonbuk primary on that day, Candidate Lee swept over 70% of the votes of the right party members, further solidifying the monopoly system.

The cumulative voter turnout for the regional circuit is 78.05% for Lee and 21.95% for Park.

The two candidates will move to Jeonnam and Gwangju on the 21st to hold primary elections.
