Yang Seung-jo, ‘Yoon Seok-yeol and Choi Jae-hyung prevention law’ “Reducing duties as a prerogative sacrifice”

On the 27th, Chungnam Governor Yang Seung-jo, the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party of Korea, pledged to enact the so-called “Yoon Seok-yeol and Choi Jae-hyung Prevention Act,” which would prevent high-ranking public officials from running for public office for as long as they had performed their duties.

At a press conference at the National Assembly Communication Center on the morning of the same day, Governor Yang said, “President Seok-Yeol Yoon and Chief of the Political Audit Office, Yoon Seok-Yeol, and Chief Justice Choi Jae-Hyeong casually damaged the provisions of the Constitution’s ‘ban on political movements’ required by the Constitution in broad daylight while the people were watching.” It has reduced the duties and powers of the government agencies that have been granted to them as sacrifices for personal greed for power.

He continued, “President Choi’s deviant behavior thoroughly undermined political neutrality, fairness, and objectivity of his duties, and it is a deception to the public that plunged the constitutional order into a deep quagmire along with ‘ex-President Yoon’s swordsmanship. Political speculation is unacceptable.”

He also said, “Ex-President Yoon’s investigation of dust and insults against the former minister of the country, Choi’s religious bias remarks that ‘nuclear power is God’s assurance’, and the nuclear power plant audit that set the outcome should never be an auditing agency “We will prepare strong measures to prevent the recurrence of the second political prosecutor Yoon Seok-yeol and political audit Choi Jae-hyeong, who are destroying the justice and common sense of public service,” he said. Under the current law, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Supreme Court Justices, Constitutional Judges, Constitutional Judges, Chief Audit and Inspection Service, Public Prosecution Service, Prosecutor General, National Police Agency, and National Investigation Headquarters are allowed to run for public office 90 days after their retirement. The two governors aim to extend the period of time limit for running for public office by the length of the period during which the heads of appraisal agencies have performed their respective positions and positions, rather than 90 days. After the interview, he met with reporters and explained, “It is a valid law for the same period of service (precluding running for office) even in order to give responsibility to the head of an institution where political neutrality is most requested.”

When asked whether the mention of the head of an appraisal agency appointed by the current government as a candidate for the presidency is not the point for the ruling party to reflect on, he said, “It should definitely be reflected. You have chosen the wrong person.”

Kim Dong-yeon, former deputy prime minister of the economy, was also mentioned as a pan-opposition candidate, saying, “I was chosen by Moon Jae-in. It is an act” and “a situation in which we have forgotten human morality in human affairs.”
