The Korea Post news:

The above photo was published by the Korean-language daily HankyorehShinmun this morning on its front page. In the photo, the just-resigned Saenuri Party National Assemblyman YooSeong-min (former ruling party floor leader) waves hand in front of the photo of President Park Geun-hye. It appears that it is one of the file photos but it shows the current situation involving Yu and the President.

Former Floor Leader OyoSong-min of the ruling Seabury Party disclosed late last night that he was leaving the party, against his will in his heart, which is expected to cause a great extent of repercussions on the Korean political arena, especially at this time when the National Assembly elections are not very far. Here are excerpts from the editorials of the English dailies published in Seoul, which give a glimpse into what’s happening in the political circles in Korea today.?Ed.

Updated : 2016-03-24 09:27

Three lawmakers of the ruling Saenuri Party quit the party Wednesday to run in next month's parliamentary race as independents, following a factional feud over the candidate selection process.

YooSeong-min, former Saenuri floor leader, announced that he will leave the party after the nomination committee failed to nominate him for the ticket for the April 13 general poll.

"The party showed politics based on anachronism and retaliation," Yoo said at a press conference in his precinct in the central city of Daegu.

Yoo -- originally the key member of the pro-Park Geun-hye faction within the party -- has been under pressure by his colleagues to either drop his election bid or leave the party.

Yoo stepped down as floor leader post in July 2015 after President Park publicly lambasted him for leading negotiations with the main opposition party on the passage of a parliamentary revision bill.

Rep. Lee Jae-oh, a five-term lawmaker and considered an opponent of the pro-Park faction, also officially left the party Wednesday.

Lee, who had failed to receive the party nod, will make an announcement Thursday to run as an independent.

Joo Ho-young, a three-term lawmaker of the ruling party, also said that he will run for a fourth term as an independent after he failed to win the party's nomination.

Candidates will officially register their official bids with the country's election watchdog, the National Election Commission, on Thursday and Friday.

The Saenuri Party has vowed to carry out sweeping reforms in their candidate selection process, which has often been cited as the reason for public distrust of major political parties.

A number of veteran Saenuri lawmakers have since left the party to either run as independents of join the opposition bloc. (Yonhap)

Ruling party makes no decision on former floor leader

Rep. YooSeong-min has left the Saenuri Party to run as an independent candidate in the April 13 general election.

While the party's nominations committee is postponing his nomination for the upcoming race, Yoo announced that he quit the party and run for a parliamentary seat, Wednesday.

"I'm leaving the party for a while. I will run in the election for justice," Yoo said during a press conference. "What the party has done over nominations was not democracy but a shameful and anachronistic political retaliation."

In order to run in the election as an independent, he must leave their party before the candidate registration period starts, according to the Election Law. The National Election Commission accepts registration for two days starting today.

The party's nominations committee controlled by loyalists to President Park Geun-hye has postponed announcing a candidate for Yoo's current constituency, Dong B district in Daegu, increasing pressure on him to leave the party.

Yoo, a former floor leader who is estranged from the President, is the last incumbent lawmaker whose candidacy remains undecided while the committee has almost completed nominations for the election.

"Today is not the last day for our deliberation on the nomination as it could last until March 25. It is the last day only for those who plan to leave the party (to run as an independent candidate)," Lee Hahn-koo, the head of the committee, said earlier that day, daring Yoo to make the first move.

Amid growing speculation on Yoo's departure, party Chairman Rep. Kim Moo-sung strongly urged the committee to nominate him, clashing head-on with Park loyalists.

Kim, a de-facto leader of the party's mainstream, also requested the committee to reconsider the exclusion of some lawmakers including five-term veteran lawmaker Rep. Lee Jae-oh.

"I have clearly delivered my opinion that nominating Yoo is the right decision," Kim told reporters after a Supreme Council meeting held to discuss the situation.

"There was no way for the party leadership to change the situation because the nominations committee kept delaying making a decision," Kim said, denouncing it for worsening the matter.

Kim claimed Yoo's exclusion will impact the party negatively in the April polls during the meeting, Rep. Rhee In-je, a Supreme Council member, said in a media interview, echoing the similar view.

The nominations committee caused repercussions following the release of the latest nominations list last Tuesday, in which most lawmakers close to Rep. Yoo and former President Lee Myung-bak were excluded. The lawmakers denounced the committee, claiming it was pro-Park faction's "political retaliation" against them, and aiming to grab control of the party after the election.

Amid deepening factional conflicts, the committee delayed the nomination of Yoo for over a week, fearing a further backlash. Many Park loyalists failed to win a parliamentary ticket in the primaries held following the controversial nominations, and the party suffered a fall in approval rating according to the recent polls.

Yoo's move prompted additional departures of lawmakers excluded from the nominations.

Rep. Lee Jae-oh and Rep. Joo Ho-young, a three-term lawmaker and former minister of special affairs under the Lee Myung-bak administration, also quit the party, saying they had decided to run as an independent. They were one of the contentious figures excluded from the latest nominations.

The Korea Joongang Daily

Yoo left the Saenuri to run as independent

Mar 25,2016

Rep. YooSeong-min, an adversary of President Park Geun-hye, left the ruling Saenuri Party Wednesday night to run as an independent in the April 13 general election.

Yoo held a press conference in his campaign office in Daegu at 11 p.m. to announce his decision. “The party has failed to show justice, common sense and principle during the nomination process,” Yoo said. “All it showed was embarrassing, anachronistic political retaliation.”

He, then, vowed to return to the party after winning the election, along with his allies who failed to win nominations for their ties to him.

Yoo was once an ally of Park, but the two parted bitterly last year after she publicly condemned Yoo for “politics of betrayal” over a political deal he brokered with the opposition. Yoo resigned from the floor leader post and became an icon of resistance to the president.

After Yoo declared his bid to run in Daegu Dong B for a fourth-term, Park loyalists opposed awarding a nomination to him. They said Yoo has a different ideology and philosophy from the ruling party.

Wednesday was the deadline for Yoo to leave the party and run as an independent because final candidate registration with the National Election Commission starts Thursday. Once the process starts, changing party affiliation is not allowed.

Daegu Dong B District, currently represented by former Saenuri floor leader Rep. Yoo, has been a ticking political time bomb over the past few weeks. The Supreme Council, headed by the party’s Chairman Kim Moo-sung, and the Nomination Committee, chaired by Rep. Lee Han-koo, a key Park ally, tried to avoid making a decision on Yoo’s application run for reelection. The move was largely interpreted as a strategy to squeeze him out of the party.

University students resisting artificial, government-directed restructuring

Students worried about infringements on academic autonomy and decline in basic disciplines, without measures for job creation

University students are embarking on a coordinated response to restructuring imposed by universities and the Ministry of Education with a focus on “industry demand.”As universities undertake department mergers and shutdowns, cuts to incoming class sizes, and other intensive restructuring to receive support from the ministry‘s PRIME and CORE efforts, many are demanding that the programs be ended or reconsidered - fearing infringements of academic autonomy and a decline in basic disciplines in the humanities, arts, and natural sciences.
