Ahn gains in opinion polls,

speaks on formation of his party today

Ahn Cheol-soo’s new party (yet to be formed) won a 27% approval rating which is more than double that of the major opposition Democratic Party (DP). It also substantially reduces the gaps with the ruling Saenuri Party.

An opinion survey published by Korean-language Internet media NEWSIS on Oct. 27, 2013, showed Saenuri winning 38% followed by Ahn with 27% and DP with 12%.

Compared with a survey conducted by Mono Research and published by Financial Today on Nov. 20, 2013, Saenuri lost 9.3% from 47.3% and the DP 1.7% from 13.7%, while Ahn gained 4.2% from 23.5%.

The survey shows that now the ruling party no longer enjoys the one-half majority in opinion polls whereas the approval ratings of the opposition camp put together, including the 2.8% won by the United Progressive Party and the 1.8% by the Justice Party, comes to 43.6% vis-?-vis 38% of Saenuri, which indicates that the opposition camp has 5.6% more than the support rating of the government party.

Ahn Cheol-soo is expected to clarify his position on the formation of his party today (Nov. 28, 2013).
