Opposition party calls for the president’s action

Moon Jae-in, a lawmaker of the main opposition Democratic Party, once again called upon President Park Geun-hye at the 4th memorial service of the late President Kim Dae-jung held at the National Cemetery in Seoul. Moon has not joined the party’s over-the-counter fight that began from August 1.

Moon said, “The only person who could solve the current situation is President Park Geun-hye,” adding, “President Park must apologize for the current situation, dismiss Nam Jae-joon, the head of the National Intelligence Service, verify the truth regarding the intervention of last year’s presidential election and the Northern Limit Line scandal and revive democracy.” Moon also said that the president should solve this problem as soon as possible through one-on-one talk with Democratic Party Chairman Kim Han-gil.

It was Moon’s first time addressing the current issue since July 2 when he attended the plenary session of the National Assembly for passing of the bill for materials of an inter-Korean summit.

Regarding his not joining the over-the-counter fight of his party, Moon said, “I’m worried that participation of a former presidential candidate could adversely affect the party’s efforts, let alone helping. I greatly appreciate and feel sorry for the party.” He did not answer to a question when he would participate in the fight. After the memorial service finished, Moon went back to Busan.
