The Democratic Party has proposed a proposal to dismiss Minister of Public Administration and Security Lee Sang-min, claiming responsibility for the Itaewon disaster.
The power of the people and the presidential office made it clear that they would reject the proposal, saying, "There is no reason to investigate state affairs."

The Democratic Party pulled out a card to propose a dismissal proposal for Minister of Public Administration and Security Lee Sang-min.

As President Yoon Seok-yeol's exercise of the veto is certain, the dismissal has no real benefit within the party. There was also an opinion to immediately propose an impeachment bill rather than a proposal, but Park Hong-geun, who had the right to decide, chose to add political pressure, saying, "In terms of canceling the decision, we are giving President Yoon Seok-yeol and Minister Lee a last chance."
The Democratic Party plans to report the proposal for dismissal of Minister Lee to the plenary session today (1st), and then raise its voice that it will move to the stage of impeachment if the president exercises his veto.
The power of the people responded that the meaning of the government investigation had disappeared.

However, he started to adjust the level, saying, "We will respond while watching the progress of the dismissal proposal," but a member of the leadership in the hospital said, "As the budget bill also needs to be passed, let's see if the dismissal proposal is actually passed."
The President's office virtually dismissed the Democratic Party's proposal for dismissal, saying, "I would like to ask again if I would like to investigate the state affairs if I dismiss the minister specified as the subject of investigation."
