Deputy Prime Minister Hong Nam-ki publicly expressed a different voice to the proposal of Democratic Party President Lee Nak-yeon to give the 4th disaster subsidies to all the people, and has not bent his opinion.
Then the ruling party even demanded to resign.
Reporter Kang Min-woo reports.
Deputy Prime Minister Hong Nam-ki met reporters after finishing the plenary session of the National Assembly.
When asked about an SNS post that refuted the remarks of Democratic Party President Lee Nak-yeon's 4th Disaster Support Payment, Deputy Prime Minister Hong made clear his will.
[Hong Nam-ki/Deputy Prime Minister of Economy: You can understand the position of the fiscal authority in a very restrained expression.] The
Democratic Party leadership showed a fierce response.
Among the party's top committees, there was a lot of blame that the form and content of the remarks, called SNS, were all inappropriate.
Representative Lee Nak-yeon, who said, "I don't want to hit the curtain," said Deputy Prime Minister Hong, who raised the level of pressure.
[Lee Nak-yeon/In addition, Democratic Party Representative: I hope the government and the ruling party will become more modest in the face of the suffering of people's lives.
In the end, the people are the masters of the finances.] The
conflict between the ruling party and the Ministry of Information and Technology reflects the difference in view of the two sides over the size of the 4th disaster subsidy.
A maximum of 30 trillion won is required if screening and universal support are carried out together, but the Ministry of Science and Technology is in the position that 10 trillion won or more is difficult given the national fiscal soundness.
A key Democratic Party official said Lee understands the pains of Deputy Prime Minister Jin Hong, who is responsible for the national fiscal responsibility, and plans to meet soon to narrow the differences between the two sides.
