Election schedule confirmed… ‘Suspect investigation and unification’ big variable

The draw for the 20th presidential election, which is about 120 days away, has been virtually confirmed. Jae-Myung Lee, Seok-Yeol Yoon, Sang-Jeong Shim, Cheol-Soo Ahn, Dong-Yeon Kim.

Reporter Kang Cheong-wan summarized the major variables surrounding each candidate.

Candidate Jae-myung Lee, who was selected as a candidate for the ruling party after working as a lawyer in juvenile court, after serving as the mayor of Seongnam and the governor of Gyeonggi Province.

Candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, a former special prosecutor and former prosecutor general of the current government, transformed into the presidential candidate of the first opposition party.

Although the two candidates are at opposite points, they also have in common that they have no experience in the National Assembly, which is called ‘Yeoido politics’.

Candidate Sang-Jeong Shim of the Justice Party challenging the fourth presidential election under the banner of the progressive party, three presidential candidates as a doctor and CEO, candidate Ahn Cheol-Soo of the People’s Party, the ‘myth of the earthen spoon’ that neither is a woman nor a woman, and former Deputy Prime Minister Kim Dong-yeon.

In the Yanggang ‘Lee Jae-myung vs. Yoon Seok-yeol’, the finals began with a multi-party structure in which the three candidates from the 3rd Zone jumped into the dark horse.

The investigation by law enforcement authorities can be a huge hurdle for candidates to overcome.

While the prosecution and the Ministry of Public Security are investigating the allegation of the Daejang-dong development and accusation, there are big variables as to whether the blade will go to the two candidates, Lee and Yoon, or whether it will lead to the special prosecutor’s investigation.

Other allegations, such as the allegation of Lee’s payment of attorneys’ fees and the alleged manipulation of the stock price of Candidate Yoon’s wife, remain pending.

As if taking full advantage of the fact that he is a candidate of the ruling party in his career as a regional group leader, the candidate has recently launched a disaster relief fund and a development profit recovery system, and is working hard to preempt policy issues.

As an opposition candidate who has no choice but to be pushed back in the capacity to realize the policy right away, it seems that he will focus on reclaiming the initiative by digging into the current government’s sore fingers and real estate policy.

The fact that recent opinion polls show that the public opinion for regime change is higher than that for regime re-creation is a point in which Candidate Yoon has an advantage.

However, it is unclear whether such public opinion will actually converge on the opposition candidates, and where the wait-and-see attitude of many middle classes will go.

Unification is expected to remain a variable until the last minute in this election.

As the movement of the Justice Party, which has been in solidarity with the Democratic Party for several elections, is different from before, the possibility of unification in the center-conservative opposition is greater.
