It has been 17 days since I resigned on the 28th of last month.

As the first case of a powerful runner outside of the people's power to join the party, the rivalry between the opposition party's presidential candidates, led by former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol, has entered a new phase.

Former President Choi visited the company in Yeouido this morning and met with the leadership including CEO Lee Jun-seok, and then held an event to join the party.

"I will repay the people by doing good politics," said former president Choi. .

Choi said, "Since I decided to start politics, I decided that it was the right idea to join a party and become the subject of change in politics, rather than looking at it from a critical point of view outside the party."

“It is more important than anything to create a country where young people who cannot see the future can live with hope now,” he said.

When asked about the political value he would pursue, Choi said, "New change and coexistence." "The country is too divided. Even if various policies started with good intentions, they do not work properly in the field, and the pain is intact in the people. It becomes a part of it, and it hurts people in particular,” he said.

"People are concerned about the future of our country," he said. "There are many questions about whether the policies currently implemented by the government are sustainable."

Choi is in a competitive relationship with former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol, who first began to act as a presidency.

When asked if he was in a hurry to join the party, conscious of former President Yoon, who distanced himself from joining the party due to the power of the people, Choi said.Until now, I have not decided my course according to other people's actions or choices."
