He also promised the seventh promise of Jeollabuk-do by creating Saemangeum Jeonbuk Special Self-Governing Province to greatly expand autonomy and financial capacity.

The candidate visited his political hometown, Gyeonggi-do, in the afternoon.

Candidate Lee, who took off his mask for the first time in a car wash, appealed to Gyeonggi-do residents who raised Lee Jae-myung to become the first president from Gyeonggi governor.

The governor of Gyeonggi Province will not be the grave of the Daegwon Road, but the flower road of the Daegwon Road.


Aiming at candidate Yoon Seok-yeol for People's Power, he argued that an incompetent leader would lead to national disaster, and that the prosecution's dictatorship and political retaliation worse than a military dictatorship would begin.

Justice Party candidate Shim Sang-jung also campaigned intensively in the metropolitan area, emphasizing that he was the only candidate representing the underprivileged, including the homeless, non-regular workers, and youth.

Then, he appealed for support, saying that morally clean Shim Sang-jeong would give the voters the pride of being a valuable vote.
