He said, “If I had in mind my candidacy for the next Presidential elections, I might have decided to stay away and wait for my next chance, but I decided that the future and importance of continued existence of the party were more pressing than my personal interests.” Then he declared, “For this reason, I have given up everything else.”
Ahn promised, “Before reforming the party, I will try to reform myself first and I will do my best to serve the party and the country.”
