Min Hyung-bae (first elected, Gwangju Gwang-eul) of the Democratic Party of Korea (Democratic Party) said to Rep. Park Yong-jin, who plays the role of ‘front-line striker’ against Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung, who was ‘first-class’ during the preliminary election on the 9th, “It’s okay, but if you keep your words out of the way, I wish,” he said. They also criticized whether the conservative cartel’s messenger attack method was being used against the same party candidate. The purpose is to refrain from personal attacks and stigma rather than criticism between competing candidates.
Rep. Min, a former social policy secretary of the current government’s Blue House, introduced the battle between Governor Lee and Rep. Park in the 4th broadcast debate the day before through social networking service (SNS). Rep. Park inquired at the debate about the basic housing, which is the representative brand policy of the branch, saying, “There is only publicity and no substance” and “Where is the pilot project complex?” The governor presented related documents saying that the project was being promoted near Dasan Jeji District in Namyangju and Beomgye Station in Anyang. Rep. Park then said, “Don’t change your words, change your thoughts.”
Rep. Min said, “I’m trying to put a wrong brand on Park,” and said, “I doubted my ears. If the substance was presented, it would have been possible to determine the authenticity with the substance, but what is the bet?” he said. He also said, “If you can’t refute the message, attack the messenger” is a long-standing tactic by the political circles.” He said, “The ‘messenger attack’ method is a method by which conservative cartels create fake news and persistently damage the morals of democratic and progressive figures.” He added, “I suspect that this is the technique that Park used against Lee Jae-myung in the TV debate on the 8th.”
Rep. Min said, “Lee has never changed his words,” he said. “It was just supplementing lesser-known information, but Park was stigmatized as ‘changing words’ and attacked him. Rep. Min further pressured Candidate Park by releasing a commemorative photo that Gyeonggi Province held the ‘Anyang Beomgye Public Complex (Basic Housing) Development Business Agreement Ceremony’ in December last year and a press release related to the promotion of basic housing in Dasan Jeji District in July.
Rep. Min said, “Even if there is fierce competition, there is a line that should not be crossed between comrades in the same party. It is very dangerous.” He also said, “We want to fight fiercely over messages, but not to attack messengers.” He also said, “It is a very dangerous attempt to attack a person just because his attack has been neutralized.”
