Candidate Yoon visited the site of the first suspicion of preferential treatment for the development project in Daejang-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 27th, and launched an offensive, saying, “If the government does not change, the entire country of Korea will be covered with the Daejang-dong gate.” He directly pressured Lee Jae-myung, the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, to accept the special prosecutor. Earlier in the morning, it seems that they have entered the final competition with Lee in earnest by targeting 10 million investors and making a pledge to abolish the securities transaction tax.
尹, Lee Jeong Jo-joon under the pretext of Dae Jang-dong’s suspicion
Candidate Yoon visited the development site in Daejang-dong on the same day and argued that “the biggest disappointment to the Moon Jae-in administration is the failure of the real estate policy. Then, referring to the case of the Korea Land and Housing Corporation (LH), which caused public outrage, he said, “I found out that a much more serious crime gate was proceeding without even a mouse or a bird. It is the gate of Daejang-dong of ‘Lee Jae-myung Seongnam-si’.” Regarding this candidate, he pointed to “the body that designed, planned, and directed the Daejang-dong gate”, “the final approval authority in the corruption chain” and “a puzzle that is absolutely indispensable for completing the gate picture.”
Candidate Yoon strongly urged the Democratic Party and Candidate Lee to accept the special prosecutor. He said, “The investigation of indulgences, busy protecting Lee and his aides, has pushed the two working-level officers into a pit of despair. said. He also directly pressured Candidate Lee, saying, “The acceptance of the special prosecutor’s word only doesn’t work anymore.”
The Democrats immediately protested, saying, “Are you saying that we should start the negative again?” Park Seong-joon, spokesman for the Democratic Party’s Election Countermeasures Committee, said, “Candidate Yoon is showing a negative election strategy of visiting Daejang-dong as if he had been waiting for his wife to apologize.”A war of nerves between the two candidates over the conduct of the presidential debate heated up. Candidate Lee wrote on Facebook on the same day that “refusing to debate is easy to understand as a declaration of no democracy.” It was a direct hit with Candidate Yoon, who showed a negative intention in the debate. “It is my belief that politicians should not avoid debate even more as they are representatives of the people who are sovereign,” Lee said.
In response, Candidate Yoon met with reporters and made a counter-proposal, saying, “Basically, if you want to have a discussion, (Lee) receive a special prosecutor in Daejang-dong and explain the various allegations honestly.” He also said, “Once the pledges and policies are announced, they change as needed. People’s Power General Election Commission Chairman Kim Jong-in also launched a support fire, saying, “It seems that Lee thinks he is a person who is very good at debating.”
Policy actions aimed at ‘ant investors’
Candidate Yoon held a press conference at the People’s Strength Company in Yeouido, Seoul on the morning of the same day and announced a pledge to restore fairness in the capital market, saying, “I will save 10 million ant investors.” Following the announcement of the ‘Happy Economy’ initiative the day before, the policy was taken two days in a row.
Candidate Yoon said, “Although one in five Koreans is participating in the stock market, the fruits of corporate growth have not been properly returned to the public. said. “We will reorganize the entire process from investigation and punishment of securities crimes such as the use of undisclosed information and stock price manipulation,” he said. It is interpreted as a remark aimed at candidate Lee, who disclosed his experience of buying operational stocks earlier.
Candidate Yoon promised to “completely abolish the securities transaction tax” in line with the introduction of the stock transfer tax in 2023. “We will lower the stock transfer tax rate, which is applied uniformly regardless of the holding period, by applying a preferential tax rate to long-term investors,” he said. However, in order to prevent side effects, it was decided to put in an exception clause that would allow taxation if it exceeds a certain number or amount. He also promised to improve short selling, which is considered an enemy of individual investors. The plan is to adjust the short selling collateral ratio that has been differentially applied to individuals, foreigners and institutions, and introduce a ‘short short circuit break’ that automatically prohibits short selling if the stock price falls excessively.
