recent opinion poll shows that Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung is leading in the passport and former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol is leading the opposition. However, recently, Governor Lee Jae-myung has been embroiled in controversy over the history of the Republic of Korea by remarking that pro-Japanese forces collaborated with the American occupation forces. Checks and criticisms against the leader continue, not only outside the party but also within the same camp.

This information will be delivered by reporter Koh Ji-hyeon.


Lee Jun-seok, leader of the People's Power Party, stood at the forefront of beating Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung.

It was emphasized that the governor's remark about the US occupation force was not a one-off.

'Self-distortion of history', 'People

's division

', Opposition presidential contenders such as 'best talk' also joined the Lee Jae-myung attack.

On the other hand, there were voices within the party against the governor Lee's remark that "Youngnam is being discriminated against."

Following former Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun's criticism of "summoning exile regionalism," 18 members of Gwangju Metropolitan City, who belong to the Democratic Party, demanded an apology through a press conference.

The Democratic Party leadership gathered firepower to beat former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol.

Representative Song Young-gil criticized the former President Yoon's expression of the current government as 'plundering the people' in this way.

Presidential candidates are also setting their sights, such as 'a private return' and "a serious decision must be made when a final conviction is found."

The People's Power leadership is pressuring the party to join the party as soon as possible to prevent external risks.

However, as Assemblyman Hong Jun-pyo said, "Not only the wife, but also sensitive issues related to the person should be verified."

From the very beginning of the candidacy declaration, checks on the front-runners have been pouring in, foretelling an infinite verification workshop in the presidential election in eight months.
