President Moon Jae-in and the new Democratic Party leadership met today (14th) at the Blue House.
The president emphasized the unity of the Blue House and the ruling party, while Democratic Party leader Song Young-gil focused on the party-led relationship, revealing a subtle difference.
This is Han Se-hyun.
President Moon Jae-in met the new Democratic Party leadership at the Blue House the day after the procedure for the appointment of the prime minister and the minister was finalized.
At the end of his tenure, President Moon ordered'unity', referring to the history of the division between the political parties.
[President Moon Jae-in: At the end of the term, there may be a gap between the government and the ruling party...
We hope that we will make a new history.]
While responding, CEO Song Young-gil did not bend the stance of'party first'.
[Song Young-gil/Democratic Party Representative: (People's) trust is required to lead our President Moon Jae-in into a successful president. In order to do that, the party's opinions need to be reflected in all future policies...
In the field of small nuclear reactors, Song also suggested changes in the policy of post-nuclear power plants, such as the necessity of cooperation with the United States.
It was interpreted that the conciseness of the Party Office was a different story, and the Blue House began to evolve in the afternoon saying, "It is necessary and desirable for the Party to take the initiative in preparing policies.
During the voluntary resignation of candidate Park Jun-young, Minister of Oceans and Fisheries, there was also an atmosphere of urgency between the party authorities.
A passport official who watched the process of personnel discussions said, "After the president's request for resending the three candidates for the minister on the 11th, CEO Song called the Blue House several times, saying that the atmosphere of the lawmakers is serious."
After that, the presidential secretary asked the president to make a decision about Candidate Park, and only yesterday was the exit strategy of voluntary resignation.
Up close, the party-government negotiations over the adjustment of real estate policies that were pointed out as the cause of the defeat of the re-election, and further, the differentiating movements of the party presidential election runners, are the key variables that will determine the power relationship in the passport at the end of the term of office.
