(Millennium Democratic Party (MDP) Supreme Council member Rhee In-Je, responding during a radio program Monday to a question regarding the controversial defection of three lawmakers from his party.)

Chu Mi-Ae, Local Autonomy Committee Chairman of the MDP, urging the party's Supreme Council to hit the opposition party hard over its alleged misuse of the state intelligence service's budget to fund two election campaigns.)
