On the 15th, Park Ju-min, a member of the Democratic Party, said, “There will be no official suggestion of pardon for former President Park Geun-hye under the name of the Democratic Party or the party’s representative.”

In an interview on MBC radio this morning, Rep. Park asked, “Is the position on the pardon within the Democratic Party organized?” He said, “After the party representative mentioned the pardon, there were many conversations in the chat room and urgently held at the Supreme Council.” Now everything is organized.”

He added that he added, “Yes,” he added, “according to what the Supreme Council organized at the time, that can be said,” he added to the question, “Is it okay to think that the Democratic Party will not officially suggest pardons to the president?”

Rep. Park, who served as a prosecution committee member at the time of the impeachment of former President Park, said, “I feel that the constitutional values ​​and rule of law have been embodied” in the ruling of the Supreme Court of the former President Park the day before.

Regarding the’apology’ issue presented by the Democratic Party as a prerequisite for amnesty, Rep. Park said, “As former President Park appears to have been almost absent from the trial process, it is unlikely that he concedes his guilt. Of course I don’t think there will be an apology.”

He said, “Since the impeachment of former President Park was done by the people, the national consent should take precedence. If there is an apology, then I can only think about it.”

On the other hand, Rep. Kwon Seong-dong, another member of the impeachment prosecution at the time, showed a clear temperature difference from Rep. Park. In the same radio interview, Rep. Kwon said, “In some ways, the investigation of the two former presidents has a side of political retaliation.” “In terms of’integrative politics’, the earlier the pardon is better. I am looking forward to the political decision of President Moon Jae-in.” Regarding the argument that the parties’ apology should be premised, he said, “It is not appropriate to place conditions on the pardon.”

In a call with the JoongAng Ilbo at the time of the impeachment of former President Park, former lawmaker Kwan-young Kim, who served as a member of the National Assembly Party’s impeachment prosecution, said in a call with the JoongAng Ilbo that “a pardon is worth considering if there is consensus among the people in terms of inclusion and harmony.” Rep. Lee Nak-yeon’s amnesty was also evaluated as “a courageous decision.” However, former lawmaker Kim posited, “If the former president himself apologizes, we will not gain public consensus.”

Opinions were divided over the sentence of former President Park’s sentence. Rep. Kwon Seong-dong said, “I respect the trial itself,” and argued, “It is true that (Former President Park) gave economic gains to a third party named Choi Seo-won, but the imprisonment of 20 years was excessive because there was no personal gain.” On the other hand, Rep. Park Ju-min and former Rep. Kim Kwan-young stated that’there is no problem with the establishment of bribery due to legal requirements.’
