Today, President Moon Jae-in replaced the 11 ministers, including eight ministers. Most notable is the appointment of former President Chung Min-jung, president of the Cheong Wa Dae, as a candidate for justice. The Blue House said Moon Jae-in's government's second cabinet was actually completed.
First, reporter Jeon Byung-nam will tell you about the reorganization today.
Former Blue House Min Jung-soo, who left the former Blue House, was nominated for the Attorney General 'as expected'.
Cheong Wa Dae explains that despite the controversy over the move of Minister of Justice, Mr. Chung is the right person for the institutional completion of prosecution reform.
[Gomin Jung / Blue House Spokesman: (I am expecting that the country's candidate) will complete key national affairs such as reform of prosecution and de-prosecutor's department, and establish fair and just law order.]
The candidates for the Minister of Science, Technology and Information were Choi Ki-young, professor of electrical and information engineering at Seoul National University, former vice-president Kim Hyun-su at the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, and professor at Catholic University of Korea at the Daegu Catholic University.
Candidate Sang-Hyuk Han, co-representative of the Citizens' Union of Democratic Press, was appointed as a candidate for the chairman of the Korea Communications Commission.
Park Sam-duk, President of the War Memorial Project, was appointed to the Veterans' Commission without a hearing, and Lee Soo-hyuk, a former foreign minister, was appointed to the US Ambassador.
Along with the late final exam, which was considered to be the most prominent issue, the United States may also consider the possibility of a backlash by the US air and conservative opposition parties.
The Blue House today announced that the Moon Jae-in government's second cabinet has actually been completed.
Additional reorganizations of Prime Minister Nak-yeon Lee, diplomatic and security lines, and education, homeland and welfare are observed by the end of the year.
