Governor Lee Jae-myung, who appeared in the Gyeonggi state audit yesterday (18th), said that the provision for recovering excess profits from private operators in the process of developing Daejang-dong was not deleted, but did not accept additional suggestions.

Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung explained the provisions of the private sector's excess profits in the Daejang-dong development project as follows.

[Lee Jae-myung/Governor of Gyeonggi: I did not accept the suggestion of the front-line employee to add the excess profit clause rather than delete it, this is a fact.] It

is not clear who did not accept the suggestion, but the reason for such a result was his instruction picked up.

[Lee Jae-myung/Governor of Gyeonggi: Why didn't you make an excess profit clause? It happened because of Seongnam City's guidelines to secure fixed profits, so if you argue against it, it's not a violation of my instructions.]

However, the governor said this on the 12th.

[Lee Jae-myung/Governor of Gyeonggi (last 12 days): It is a case that can be called Gapjil, but since the profit is expected to be more than 180 billion won, I ordered (directed) to bear an additional 100 billion won, and added 110 billion won to the conditions of the authorization. It has been refunded.]

In the People's Power, there were criticisms that it was not a change of word, and in particular, regarding the 'recommendation of the excess profit return clause' not being accepted, lawmaker Park Soo-young and others argued that "they were evading the responsibility of giving more profits to Seongnam citizens and they were a breach of trust." has filed.

In addition, the Gyeongsilren demanded the introduction of a special prosecutor, claiming that the development of Daejang-dong was a project that resulted in unjustified profits of 1.6 trillion won to private companies by forcibly expropriating green belt land by public authorities.

However, in a post on social media immediately after the National Inspection, the governor continued his position as a 'People's Power Gate', saying, "I tried to prevent theft, but the people's power prevented the recovery of stolen goods, and only 70% of the items were recovered."
