Rep. Jang Je-won, the power of the people, who is considered close to President Yoon Seok-yeol, has reappeared on the political front.
He will take up the position of chairman of two key standing committees next year.
This is reporter Park Chan-beom.
Rep. Jang Je-won, who was counted as one of President Yoon Seok-yeol's aides after serving as the elected chief of staff, declared a retreat from the second term in August.
He said he would not hold any appointed public office in the Yoon Seok-yeol government, saying he would take responsibility for the state affairs chaos and party infighting.

Today (8th), the 100th day of the 2nd retreat declaration, Rep. Jang stood at the forefront of politics again. It is.
He was elected as a candidate for the National Assembly's Public Administration and Security Committee next year, but according to the agreement between the ruling and opposition parties, he will move to the position of the head of the Science and Technology Communications Commission from June.
The Public Administration and Security Committee is a standing committee with pending issues related to Minister Lee Sang-min and the National Police Agency, where a proposal for dismissal was reported, and over-defense is a standing committee with a lot of sensitive issues, such as the move of Han Sang-hyeok, chairman of the Korea Communications Commission, and the governance structure of public broadcasting.

I don’t know if it will live up to expectations.] Rep.
Jang increased his presence by increasing external remarks after a dinner at the presidential residence with four lawmakers close to him on the 22nd of last month.
Regarding the election of Minister Han Dong-hoon, he made a bitter noise to the party leadership, criticized the police's poor investigation of the Itaewon disaster, and posted an article to cover Minister Lee Sang-min.
In addition, he is also creating an atmosphere of reconciliation with Rep. Kwon Seong-dong, who recently had a discord.
Ahead of the party convention, there are observations that the game itself may be shaken depending on the role of Rep. Jang as the nervous warfare of the prospective party runners heats up.
