presidential election is now 90 days away. Starting today (9th), there are quite a few things that candidates should not do. You are not allowed to appear on TV other than discussion forums, and advertisements or publication commemorative parties are also prohibited. You must also step down from public office, but you can continue to be a member of the National Assembly. So far, 20 candidates have been registered with the National Election Commission. The official election campaign period begins on the next day, the 15th, the day after the deadline for candidate registration on February 14th next year.
The Election Commission is planning to host the candidate debate three times. Currently, four candidates are invited: Jae-Myung Lee, Seok-Yeol Yoon, Sang-Jeong Shim, and Cheol-Soo Ahn.
