Democratic Party has decided to postpone the presidential election due to the current serious corona situation. However, there are differences of opinion among the candidates as to when to postpone the election of the presidential candidates from the current early September.

Next is reporter Yoo Su-hwan.


All six Democratic presidential primary candidates agree to postpone the current primary election schedule, where the election of candidates is completed by September 10 at the latest in consideration of the re-spread of the coronavirus.

The question is how long will it be delayed?

Candidate Jae-myung Lee's position is to complete the election of candidates by the beginning of October, before the state audit.

It puts forward the logic of avoiding the negative offensive that the opposition will pour out against passport runners during the national inspection period.

Candidate Yong-jin Park also said, "It's right to postpone the quarantine for a month," and put weight on the 'early October election', and Choo Mi-ae's side suggested that the Maginot line be held at the end of September.

On the other hand, candidate Kim Doo-gwan rekindled the 'November competition theory', saying, "Let's match the schedule with the power of the people." I haven't pinpointed a specific time period.

Chairman Song Young-gil and Party Election Commission Chairman Lee Sang-min will meet tomorrow (16th) to finalize the postponement time.

Lee Jae-myung vs. Lee Nak-yeon, a melee battle between the two candidates, got stronger today.

Candidate Jae-myung Lee threatened that he would not stand it, saying he had been attacked a lot by foul play.

Lee Nak-yeon's side scratched once more, saying that Lee Jae-myung's flaws were clearly revealed.

Despite the fact that the Party Election Commission postponed the candidate TV debate scheduled for next week, the two sides argued with each other saying, "It's 'Lee Jae-myung's side'" and "No, it's irrelevant."
