New wave candidate Kim Dong-yeon, who served as the first deputy prime minister for economy of the current government, resigned from the presidential nomination post, announcing support for Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung.

While devaluing the power of the people, he appealed to 'the people to unite by voting' about unification with Ahn Cheol-soo, candidate of the People's Party.

New wave candidate Kim Dong-yeon, who had a sudden meeting with Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung on the 1st, resigned and declared support for Lee.



[Kim Dong-yeon/New Wave Presidential Candidate: From today, I will tie the laces of my sneakers again for the election of Candidate Jae-myung Lee.

Let the flames of overcoming the established politics spread into wildfire...

.]



Candidate Kim, who proposed breaking the vested interests as the reason for running for office, met with Yoon Seok-yeol, the People's Power candidate, but explained that it was the next best choice, saying that Lee was more active in changing politics.



Candidate Jae-myung Lee said, "I am deeply grateful for Candidate Kim's decision."



The Democratic Party seems to be trying to 'anti-Yun Seok-yeol solidarity' at the last minute through the 'integrated government', saying that Kim Jong-in, former general election chairman of the People's Power, said, "I want to invite you when I have the opportunity."



People's Power also devalued candidate Kim, who was the first deputy prime minister of the economy, to be responsible for the situation.



[Kwon Young-se / General Power of the People's Election Headquarters: Well, I don't think it's such a big deal.

I don't think it's that the people who made our economy difficult have such a destructive power when we do it together.]



At the party level, we added a criticism commentary with expressions such as "joining the polluted old wave" "fraudism" and "junk coalition".



People's Power saw that it would be difficult to achieve unification of candidate Ahn Cheol-soo and opposition candidate from the People's Party unless he directly decides, and appealed to the supporters to "unify through voting."
