On the 26th, President Yoon Seok-yeol stressed: “It is a very dangerous thing for people to undermine the alliance with news other than facts.” Instead of an apology or an expression of regret, it was a frontal turn with the frame of “fake news” and “harm to the national interest”.
This morning, on his way to Yongsan’s presidential office, President Yoon was asked a question by reporters and stressed the importance of the Korea-US alliance and said, “I think the rest of the story needs to be revealed first. clearly”.
Previously, President Yoon had a conversation with US President Joe Biden at the 7th Global Fund Fiscal Commitment Meeting held in New York on 21st (local time). After leaving the venue, there was a scene where he said to his staff: “If the National Assembly doesn’t approve these XX, what should I do because OOO is out of stock?” As for “OOO”, “Biden” media reports and the explanation of the “flying” presidential office are conflicting.
◆ 尹 In the controversy about swear words … “36.4% at the beginning of the week → 32.8% at the weekend”
President Yoon’s revolutionary strategy had been foretold. Earlier, Chief of Staff Kim Dae-gi began a frontal turn with the frame of “fake news” at the high-ranking party council meeting on the 25th, the day after Yoon’s return to Korea.
President Yoon’s choice to break through the front instead of a separate apology or expression of regret was a sense of crisis that “if pushed, it will end.” If President Yoon apologizes to the public, the pressure for the “renewal of the people” on the diplomatic and security lines will inevitably increase. This means that President Yoon’s My Way strategy was based on his intention to hide the controversy over the “diplomatic disaster” raised by the opposition party.
However, it is unclear whether President Yoon’s strategy will block the “passport crisis theory”. Immediately, President Yoon’s “remarks on the investigation of the facts” surfaced as a deputy to the government. The flow of public opinion is also not boring.
According to the results of a survey conducted on 19 and 23 by ‘Realmeter’ at the request of the Media Tribune and published the 3rd week of September (the sampling error is ± 1.9% points at the 95% confidence level), The approval rate for President Yoon’s state affairs was higher than the previous week. It was 34.6%, an increase of 0.2 percentage points. However, if you look at the daily indicators, the approval rating, which started from 36.4% at the start of the tour (20th), dropped to 32.8% on 23rd, when the scandal of vulgarity.
In a Gallup Korea poll released on the 23rd, President Yoon’s approval rating dropped to the 20% level. In a survey of 1,000 adult voters aged 18 and over nationwide from 20th to 22nd (the sample error was ± 3.1% points at the 95% confidence level), the positive rating of work performance decreased by 5 percentage points compared to the previous week to 28%. On the other hand, the negative rating was 61%, up 2 percentage points from the previous week (see the Deliberation Committee of the Central Electoral Opinion Survey above).
When “diplomatic achievements” were buried in the jargon controversy … The presidential office actively promoted
The presidential office, which dismissed the diplomatic disaster controversy, focused on promoting Yoon’s accomplishments at the UN General Assembly. Concerns about the diplomatic results of the summit between the ROK and the United States and the leaders of South Korea and Japan appear to have been buried in a controversy over vulgarity.
In the presidential office on this day, President Yoon delivered a keynote address to the UN General Assembly during his visit to inform the international community of the freedom and solidarity keynote, explaining that he had discussed the normalization of relations.
Regarding Korea-Japan relations in particular, President Yoon said: “In the past administration, Korea-Japan relations have deteriorated too much.
In response, the government’s condolence delegation led by Prime Minister Han Duk-soo will visit Japan for two days and one night from the 27th to attend the late Shinzo Abe, former Japanese Prime Minister General Manager. Prime Minister Han is expected to meet Prime Minister Kishida on the 28th and it is interesting to note whether the two countries can stimulate the normalization of relations.
