An official from the Democratic Party said that it is important to feel the support and that a budget of up to 20 trillion won will be needed.

This is more than twice the size of the 3rd disaster support fund, which was invested KRW 9.3 trillion.

The Ministry of Strategy and Finance suggested 12 trillion won as a funding budget at the high-ranking party political meeting yesterday (14th), but the Democratic Party was reported to have expressed dissatisfaction with saying that it was'not enough.'

However, as the government is expressing difficulty in issuing government bonds for financing, it is unclear whether the ruling party will be accepted.

A Democratic Party official who watched the party meeting predicted that "we will find an agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the party's request, around 15 trillion won."

However, it is known that the additional budget that was not executed last year exceeds 4 trillion won, and the burden of the ruling party, such as opposition from the opposition to sprinkling money for elections, is also a difficult situation.
