Yun Seok-yeol, a presidential candidate for the People’s Strength, who is visiting Daegu and Gyeongbuk (TK), poured out hard-line and primary-colored remarks for the second day. Candidate Yoon said, “Aren’t these people crazy?” He began calling the election process as a struggle, saying, “I would rather die standing rather than live on my knees” and “we have to fight.” It was a full-fledged transition to rental strong attack mode. It is interpreted as a move to try to reverse the declining approval rating by gathering the conservative supporters.
Candidate Yoon visited various places in the TK area on the 30th, the second day of the Daegu, Gyeongbuk (TK), and Chungbuk visits for 3 days 2 nights, and poured out hardline remarks following the previous day.
At the inauguration ceremony of the Daegu Election Countermeasures Committee held at the Daegu City Party, Candidate Yoon criticized the passport by mobilizing harsh expressions regarding the controversy over the communication inquiry of the Ministry of Public Security and the introduction of the special prosecutor to investigate allegations of large-scale operation. Candidate Yoon said, “I, my wife, my wife’s friends, and even my sister conducted telecommunication inspections.” “Aren’t these crazy people?” Regarding Kim Jin-wook, director of the Airborne Division, he said, “We need to investigate the arrest right now,” he said.
Candidate Yoon vehemently criticized the media reports that the prosecution had searched about 2.82 million communications data during his tenure as prosecutor general. He referred to the article at a local press conference and pointed an arrow at Candidate Yoon as “a water-riding article that acknowledges the Democratic Party’s newspaper.”
Candidate Yoon defined the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign promise as “an unbelievable ‘bankruptcy bill'” and said, “If you fail (in running the government), admitting your failure and humbly giving up the government and stepping down is the essence of democracy, which is responsible politics.” It is an extension of what he said to the passport the day before, “There is no need for a presidential election, and now the correct answer is to come out with the government and step down.” Regarding Democratic presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung, “(his) discoloration and transformation techniques are fun and annoying to the public,” and “Isn’t it because he’s the criminal of Daejang-dong? Would it be okay to have such a person as president?” he said.
Candidate Yoon’s hardline mode with remarks that crossed the level of danger seems to have been the intention to gather supporters with a clear message from TK, a key support area for the people’s power. Immediately after the election of the presidential candidate on November 5, the approval rating of Lee who was ahead of Lee in various opinion polls has recently stalled or is on the decline. Candidate Yoon is in a situation in need of a breakthrough as a number of negative factors such as controversy over his remarks, spouse risk, and conflict with CEO Lee Jun-seok overlap at the same time. Accordingly, it is interpreted as an attempt to rally the public opinion of ‘Ban Moon Jae-in (Ban Moon Jae-in + Ban Lee Jae-myung)’ holding the flag of the struggle for lending to the communication inquiry controversy.
On the same day, Candidate Yoon expressed the election process as a ‘struggle’ online and throughout the TK schedule. He said to social networking service (SNS), “I will win the struggle for regime change against the ruling ‘Moon Jae-myung'”, and at the inauguration ceremony of the Daegu election, “If we do not change the government, our party will also be uprooted.” We have to fight.” It appealed to the unity of the supporters while emphasizing the sense of crisis about the failure of the regime change.
Candidate Yoon emphasized the ‘war of ideology’ while visiting the Monument to the Battle of Dabu-dong, which was built in Chilgok-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do, which was a fierce battleground during the Korean War that afternoon. Candidate Yoon said, “Like a young man (then) who took a rifle and jumped into defending a free democracy against the communists without proper training, I too did not receive political training, but I can’t let liberal democracy crumble, so I joined politics with the same mindset. jumped in,” he said. The day before, “a group that has learned such things as the left-wing revolutionary ideology and North Korea’s Juche theory and joined the ranks of the pro-democracy movement is plundering the country and people as if they were pro-democracy fighters.”
He once again welcomed the amnesty of former President Park Geun-hye, who was impeached for government nongdan. Candidate Yoon said at a press conference that day, “I am in a position to welcome President Park’s release very greatly, and I think it should have come out a little earlier.” “I wish former President Park a speedy recovery,” he said. Regarding the exclusion of former President Lee Myung-bak from the amnesty, he said, “I think President Lee Myung-bak should be released soon.”
