Former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol announced that he would run for president next year.
He said that we must correct liberalism and common sense, and prevent the extension of power by corrupt and incompetent forces, and that we must all work together for regime change.
Former President Yoon refused to give an immediate answer to the question of whether or not to join the party through the people's power.
This is the first news today (29th), reporter Park Won-kyung.
117 days after the resignation of the Prosecutor General in March, former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol announced his candidacy for next year's presidential election at the Yun Bong-gil Memorial Hall.
He vowed to judge the corrupt and incompetent regime and achieve regime change without fail.
[Yoon Seok-yeol / Former Prosecutor General: We must prevent the extension of power and the plunder of the people by corrupt and incompetent forces.
All the people and forces who agree on this must work together.]
Nearly half of the 15-minute proclamation was devoted to criticism of the current regime, emphasizing the cause of appearing as an opposition candidate.
[Yoon Seok-yeol / Former Prosecutor General: A small number of cartel interests entangled with the government and interests privatize power…
Fairness, common sense, and the rule of law were put forward as the spirit of the times for the presidential election.
[Yoon Seok-yeol / Former Prosecutor General: Justice and the rule of law are essential basic values.
Setting these values right is the beginning of politics for the people.] He did
not give an immediate answer on whether or not to join the party with the help of the people, but emphatically said that they had the same opinion in terms of political philosophy.
This is a foreshadowing that there may be a nerve war in the future.
Before the press conference, about 20 People's Power lawmakers including Jeong Jin-seok and Kwon Seong-dong visited the event, and it is known that they encouraged former President Yoon and urged him to join the party.
People's Power Representative Lee Jun-seok praised the fact that he confirmed that he did not differ greatly from the majority of people who wished for a regime change, and Rep. Hong Jun-pyo, who had a public briefing session at the same time and formalized his candidacy for the presidency, joined the power of the people by former President Yoon. It was proposed to compete and be verified.
Around 500 supporters of former President Yoon gathered around the venue, and
A man, pushed by the crowd, collapsed and was taken to a hospital.
