<Anchor> For the

Democratic Party, the meaning of Gwangju and Jeollanam-do is probably different. Here the game was decided by a very narrow margin. Let's analyze it in a little more detail with a reporter who is on the scene.

Reporter Ko Jung-hyun and Candidate Nak-yeon Lee won for the first time and managed to win, but how did you evaluate them on the spot?


Yes, Honam is a symbolic area for the Democratic Party.

If you look at the number of right party members alone, 28% of the total are in Honam.

In addition, the Honam Party of the Democratic Party has shown a strategic voting tendency in previous presidential primary elections.

Roh Moo-hyun, Jeong Dong-young, and Moon Jae-in, who were the final candidates for the Democratic Party in previous presidential elections, have in common that they are the candidates chosen by the Honam Party.

This is why Lee Nak-yeon attaches great importance to the victory of Honam.

However, the fact that the difference between the 1st candidate Nak-yeon Lee and the 2nd candidate Jae-myung Lee is only 0.17 percentage points is a relief for Candidate Jae-myung Lee.

So it seems that we will be able to accurately analyze Honam's choice only after seeing the results of the Jeonbuk election tomorrow (26th).

In the Gwangju-Jeonnam regional primary, the concern was how much the suspicion of the Daejang-dong development might affect the votes.

The turnout in Gwangju and Jeollanam-do was 56.2%, which is significantly lower than the overall regional average turnout in which the primary elections were held so far, 71.4%.

Candidates are in a situation where they need to pay more attention to profit and loss.


Each of the candidates for the 1st and 2nd places gave not bad evaluations, how will it affect the overall competition?


Yes, out of the 127,000 Gwangju and Jeonnam electoral colleges, 71,000 voted.

The number of electoral colleges in Jeonbuk tomorrow is 76,000.

The difference between the current cumulative 1st place candidate Lee Jae-myung and the cumulative 2nd place candidate Lee Nak-yeon is still 110,000 votes.

So, the key is, on the 3rd of next month, how much the votes of 496,000 members of the general party and the National Electoral College, that is, the votes of the 2nd Super Week, will be affected by the results of the Honam primary.

Next weekend, we will be able to determine whether Candidate Jae-myung Lee maintains a majority and goes directly to the final without a runoff vote, or whether Candidate Nak-yeon Lee narrows the margin and goes to the runoff.
