A policy debate also slated on “New Challenges to Democracy and Constitutionalism”

The National Assembly will hold a celebration to mark the 72nd anniversary of the Constitution Day of the Republic of Korea on July 17 at the rotunda hall in the Main Building. This was recently announced by the National Assembly.

The event is expected to be attended by former National Assembly Speakers, and the four highest-ranking officials of the country—the President, National Assembly Speaker, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and President of the Constitutional Court. Given that the coronavirus pandemic is still continuing in the country, this year’s ceremony will be held in a simpler and modest manner. The size and number of celebratory performances and performers will be reduced compared to those of previous years. Also, the number of attendees will be largely decreased, from 1,700 to about 400, who will be required to wear a face mask and sit apart from one another. The event will be broadcast live on KBS and NATV.
In a related development, the National Assembly Research Service on July 21 will hold a policy debate on the topic of “New Challenges to Democracy and Constitutionalism” to mark the 72nd Constitution Day. Participants will be discussing a variety of challenges facing the administrative, legislative and judicial sectors, for instance, how to secure democracy in the parliament, how to achieve harmony of independence and responsibility in the judicial branch, operation of public engagement commissions as a new means for deliberative administration, and so forth. The debate will be jointly hosted by the NARS, the Korean Bar Association, the Judicial Policy Research Institute, and the Koran Public Law Association.
During the previous week, 361 bills were submitted, of which 358 were legislative bills.
