Gyeonggi Province Governor Lee Jae-myung said on the 10th that he wished he would work for the people about the recent moves of former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol, who is a rival and top candidate in the opposition presidential election.

Governor Lee met with reporters after a meeting with the party leaders and provincial governors held at the National Assembly in the afternoon of the same day, and answered a question about ‘the first public activity of former President Yoon the previous day (9th)’, saying, “You are studying hard. I hope to be,” he replied.

The governor avoided an immediate response, saying, “It’s the first I’ve heard of it, and I’ll find out (I’ll tell you)” as to the fact that the high-ranking public officials’ crime investigation department (Public Investigation Office) formally booked Yoon on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of the exercise of right.

He re-emphasized the existing position that the principle should be adhered to with respect to the ‘theory of postponement of the primary’ raised both inside and outside the party. Governor Lee said, “Trust is the most important thing in politics, and trust comes from keeping principles and promises. It’s not a gathering, but a gathering of diverse people, so it’s good to have different opinions.” He added, “But what’s really important is to think about the public’s eye level and the public’s expectations.” The governor said, “Real estate speculation.” “Is there any future in a society where there are still more profits from real estate than earned income and many people are clinging to real estate speculation?” he asked.

“The method to prevent speculation is already simple and set for everyone to know,” he said. “It is enough to prevent people from making money with real estate.”

He also pointed out, “It cannot be blamed for individuals pursuing their own interests. The problem is that it is not normal for those in charge of running and running this country to use the power they have been entrusted with to take care of their own interests.”

He added, “We do not condemn activities for personal gain, but we have the responsibility to control and adjust them, and if the person who has been given such authority takes advantage of the opportunity to take unfair advantage, it is impossible to recover, so it is impossible to recover the public authority among public officials. It should prevent them from pursuing their own interests.”

Governor Lee said, “If high-ranking public officials are not allowed to own real estate other than essential, and if they have additional real estate other than essential real estate, the problem will be greatly reduced if they are not promoted to senior positions or appointed to high-ranking positions. ” he added.
