President’s office suggests veto right of “President’s duty to contain the majority runaway” in the Yellow Envelope Act|The Dong-A Ilbo

As the huge opposition party goes through the process of forcibly handling the Yellow Envelope Act (the revision of Articles 2 and 3 of the Labor Union and Labor Relations Adjustment Act), attention is being paid to whether President Seok-yeol Yoon will again exercise the right to request a reconsideration (veto).

Earlier, on the 25th, the Democratic Party and the Justice Party passed the request for wealth in the plenary session of the Yellow Envelope Act while members of the People’s Power left the National Assembly Environment and Labor Committee. In response, the power of the people announced that they would suggest the exercise of the right to veto to President Yoon, and announced a strong response.

The presidential office plans to monitor the discussions between the ruling and opposition parties in the future as the National Assembly process remains, and respond by collecting opinions from various stakeholders. However, President Yoon’s awareness of the problem with the unilateral ‘enforcement of legislation’ by the majority party, the Democratic Party, is firm, giving weight to the prospect of exercising the veto.

An official from the presidential office told Newsis on the 27th, “(Democratic Party) is one reason why the Yoon Seok-yeol administration is trying to forcefully handle a bill that was not actively handled during the Moon Jae-in administration.” He pointed out that if the actual veto is exercised on the basis of the premise, it is trying to paint over with’disconnection’ and’ignoring the legislative branch’.”

The official continued, “By doing so, they are trying to win the votes of the voter group or special interest group they are targeting,” and pointed out, “(The enforcement of the legislation) is a kind of veto induction operation.” Furthermore, he said, “It seems that the strategic legislation will be repeated in order to put an image of’disabled’ on the regime until then, aiming for the general election next year.”

President Yoon has already exercised his veto power over the amendment to the Grain Management Act and the enactment of the Nursing Act. If he vetoes the Yellow Envelope Act, he will become the president who has vetoed three times in less than a year in office. The presidential office believes that the Democratic Party can continue the mode of ‘legislative enforcement’ until next year in order to build an image as a president who vetoes President Yoon as one of the general election strategies.

The presidential office is concerned that the image of ‘disconnection’ may be highlighted by successive vetoes, but as the Democratic Party’s enforcement or foretold bills are highly likely to increase conflict between classes by excessively reflecting only the positions of certain classes, It is the position that the exercise of the veto or review is inevitable.

The official asked back, “If the results of efforts to reconcile differences between groups are incorporated into the bill, how could the president reject it?” will” he said.

He added, “If the work of the legislature has not been done properly for reasons such as going beyond the framework of the Constitution and laws, failing to coordinate the interests of stakeholders, having a significant impact on the national economy, or being contrary to the Constitution, or If there is a large number of runaways, it is the duty of the president, the head of the administration, to contain them,” he emphasized.

Another official pointed out problems with the yellow envelope law. This official said, “There is talk of whether the Yellow Envelope Act is a contract legislation from the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, and six economic organizations have issued a joint statement to oppose it.”

He continued, “(The opposition party’s) unilateral legislation is the cause of the problem, and the exercise of the right to veto appeared as a result of it.” With a budget of 400 billion won, how can I sign the bill without requesting a reconsideration?”

Meanwhile, the Yellow Envelope Act restricts management’s indiscriminate lawsuits for losses from union strikes and deals with negotiations between prime contractors and subcontractors. The six economic organizations expressed their opposition through a joint statement. The ruling party is in the position that it should not be dealt with because there are unconstitutional elements such as property rights infringement along with concerns about the impact on the industrial ecosystem and the promotion of illegal strikes.
