The Democratic Party of Korea is emphasizing a humble attitude and party innovation every day, 60 days before the presidential election. The Democratic Party Election Countermeasures Committee, drunk on the division of the people’s power, said, “Let’s not be arrogant,” and launched an internal crackdown. It has also begun work on party renewal by inducing on-site election campaigns among members of the National Assembly and candidates for local elections. When the power of the people entered a phase of renewal, such as the dissolution of the predecessor, the counter-reaction was started. Candidate Jae-myung Lee enters the schedule for season 2 of ‘Matta Bus (weekly Minsaeng Bus)’, which meets with voters directly every weekend.
Candidate Lee was asked about the rise in approval ratings in the New Year’s poll at the Kimdaejung Convention Center in Gwangju on the 5th, and answered, “If changes like the heavens and earth change even within a week or ten days, the approval rating is the approval rating, and public sentiment is something to be feared like the will of heaven.” . He said, “We will do our best with fear because we do not believe that this is a phenomenon that is fully supported by the people through our own efforts.
The Democratic Party’s election leader urged the party to refrain from overreacting to the infighting of the people. At the new year’s supplementary budget meeting held at the National Assembly on the same day, floor leader Yun Ho-jung said, “The opposing party’s self-determination does not guarantee our party’s ability and victory.” You must not show an arrogant attitude.” Ex-CEO Lee Hae-chan and Assemblyman Jeong Seong-ho also recently posted a message on social media to the effect of “don’t be reckless.”
The party’s predecessor also foretold full-fledged party innovation and reform of the predecessor party. Kang Hoon-shik, head of the strategic planning division of the election committee, said in a briefing at the company’s headquarters in Yeouido, Seoul on the same day, “The party plans to actively reflect its contribution to the presidential election in the nominations for local elections in June.” He announced that he would introduce a one-strike-out system, in which he would be immediately fired if a senior executive officer caused any problems, such as sarcasm. In addition, it was decided to dispatch 30% of the total number of members over 1,000 to the region in order to promote the slimming of the central line captain. He also encouraged members of the National Assembly to campaign for on-site elections. Kim Byeong-wook, head of the function division of the predecessor committee, held a briefing session on the introduction of the system of exclusive use of two functions for one member of the National Assembly in charge of two functional groups for each member of the National Assembly on the same day.
In the new year, candidate Lee resumes his livelihood meeting with voters under the theme of ‘walking into the hearts of the people’. Candidate Lee will conduct a self-live broadcast on his mobile phone while moving in Seoul by public transportation such as bus and subway from the 7th. On the 8th, a town hall meeting will be held at the reconstruction site to come up with measures to ease restrictions on reconstruction and redevelopment. While taking care of the real estate issue, he set out to solidify the image of the president of the economy and people’s livelihood.
The Democratic Party believes that the Golden Cross has not yet arrived. Considering the unification variable between the People’s Power candidate Yoon Seok-yeol and the People’s Party candidate Ahn Cheol-soo, it is judged that the approval rating can be overturned at any time. The party believes that Lee’s approval rating should rise to the mid-40s to offset the current high public opinion about regime change. In all 9 opinion polls published on the 1st and 3rd, Lee’s approval rate (34.4~41%) slightly exceeded that of Yoon (25.2~39.2%), but did not exceed 45%.
