Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon said on the 12th, “It was an unfavorable environment, with the Democratic Party occupying an absolute majority in the city council and the mayor of 24 out of 25 autonomous districts in Seoul. He served a one-year term of office.

Mayor Oh said at a press conference on the first anniversary of his inauguration held in the conference room on the 3rd floor of Seoul City Hall on the morning of the same day, “The city council, which has the power of an absolute majority, puts a brake on the essential projects to strengthen Seoul’s urban competitiveness and restore the mobility ladder and budget for it. “We’ve all been watching the process of drastic cuts,” he said.

He said, “Even in such circumstances, I am proud that I have worked really hard every day with the will of keeping my promises to the citizens,” he said.

He continued, “I want to evaluate myself for being faithful to the plan for the past year and normalizing the city administration that has retreated to the past for the past 10 years. ” he emphasized.

He also explained, “I feel great significance in the unwavering ‘correction of Seoul city’, which corrects the structure of inappropriate blood taxation against specific groups that have been formed over a long period of time during the former mayor’s time.”

Regarding the real estate issue, he said, “We communicated with the residents on the real estate issue, which was the biggest request of the citizens at the time of the last by-election, and made a two-track effort to prepare all possible system improvement measures at the city level, such as new communication planning, at the same time.”

Mayor Oh predicted, “As the new government adopted most of Seoul’s core housing policies, which are based on expansion of housing supply and tax reform, as pledges, what sowed and sprouted will now bear fruit one by one.”

As a result of the recent ‘2021 Seoul Survey’, one out of two ‘de-Seoul’ people is in their 20s and 30s, pointing out that the departure of young people is an immediate task.

Mayor Oh said, “Young people who have gathered in search of their dreams are turning their backs on Seoul. “The biggest cause was the problem of house prices that soared beyond our ability to afford,” he said.

He continued, “The reason I exist as the mayor of Seoul is to solve problems that reduce the dream and vitality of Seoul and make life difficult for citizens. I will definitely achieve it,” he said.

He added, “We will complete Seoul, a city of fairness and coexistence, full of passion for 24-hour youth, as planned and return it to citizens,” he added.
