In the opposition, the battle for leadership over the unification of the candidate for mayor of Seoul is going wild. When CEO Ahn Chul-soo asked, “How long do you mean to make concessions only?”
This is reporter Chae Seung-gi.
Ahn Cheol-soo, the head of the National Assembly Party, expressed dissatisfaction with the power of the people.
[안철수/국민의당 대표 : 저와 정치를 함께하지도 않았고, 저를 잘 알지 못하는 분들까지 나서서 저에 대한 근거 없는 비판을 하기도 합니다.]
The power of the people is that they did not hide their uncomfortable feelings when some people responded with personal aggression, saying, “I always see it for a long time.”
The power of the people has raised the level of criticism, saying that President Ahn is passive about unification.
[나경원/전 국민의힘 의원 (어제) : 중요한 정치 변곡점마다 결국, 이 정권에 도움을 준 사람이 어떻게 야권을 대표할 수 있겠습니까?]
Representative Ahn also insisted that the people’s strength continues to force concessions even though they have been striving to win the opposition.
[안철수/국민의당 대표 : 야권 전체의 승리를 위해 작년 총선에서는 지역구 후보도 내지 않았습니다. 그런데도 누군가는 저에게 더 양보하고, 더 물러서기를 요구하고 있습니다.]
It is interpreted that there is no intention to yield to the power of the people in the process of unifying candidates.
The People’s Party also went on to cover Ahn.
[이태규/국민의당 사무총장 (MBC 라디오 ‘김종배의 시선집중’) : 솔직히 제1야당이 못나서 정권 빼앗기고 연전연패한 것 아닙니까? 거기에 대한 반성을 먼저 해야 되고…]
Then the power of the people reacted immediately.
Yeouido Research Institute Director Ji-wook Ji wrote, “It is said that he made concessions now because he was unable to give up the candidate for the district because he was not capable in the last general election.
The conflict between the two sides over unification is expected to continue for the time being.
