Kwon Seong-dong, floor leader of the People's Power, strongly opposed the news that IBK Industrial Bank President Yoon Jong-won was appointed as the Ministerial-level Ministerial Office for Policy Coordination to assist the Prime Minister.
As President Yoon served as chief economic officer of the Blue House under the Moon Jae-in government, he is responsible for policies such as income-led growth.
Kwon said to SBS reporter, "People with the right philosophy must come where political judgment is needed," and he directly opposed President Yoon Seok-yeol and Prime Minister Han Deok-soo.
In particular, although Prime Minister Han expressed his displeasure, saying, "There is no one to replace him," floor leader Kwon said, "Why are you so stubborn to work only with people you have worked with once?"
The prime minister did not back down.

I look like this...
However, there are criticisms that the 'responsible prime minister system' emphasized by President Yoon may not be popular, and that running a narrow talent pool while promoting cooperation will amplify the 'camp conflict'.Keywords:
