Rep. Lee Gwang-jae, who declared his candidacy for the presidency, repeatedly urged Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung to make a big concession while more than 60 non-member Lee Jae-myung-gye members of the Democratic Party demanded that the party's presidential election be postponed and called for a general assembly.
Rep. Lee appeared on the SBS digital original 'Issubla' and urged him to listen to the concerns of lawmakers in the party, saying, "During the presidential election, candidates Moon Jae-in and Roh Moo-hyun changed the election rules as their opponents wanted them."
He also discussed delaying the primary at the party's first-elected parliamentary meeting, and the reason was, "The opposition party changes the primary election rules and conducts an innovative primary, but the Democrats are too old-fashioned and postpone the primary and then radically change it," he said. I don't want to do it, but I hope we can do cool politics with each other's cool words."
When asked if it would be inappropriate for Lee Jae-yong to claim a pardon for Samsung Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, who had received presidential campaign funds in the past, Lee said, "If there is any hesitation, I don't talk about it. I'm talking about pardon because I have a dignified side." rebutted.
"I think a lot of things have been sorted out because President Moon Jae-in has already said that there are many people who sympathize with me," he said.
However, the amnesty of the two former presidents, Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye, drew a line saying, "I have a different opinion. I would like to focus on the economy."
Rep. Lee revealed a strong welfare plan through strong growth as a key election policy, and also presented specific alternatives for coin market transparency and real estate stabilization policies.
The digital original 'Issubla' starring Rep. Lee will be released for the first time on SBS News YouTube at 3:40 pm on the 18th, and will be released on the SBS News homepage, various portals, and SNS afterwards.
