Democratic Party candidate Lee Jae-myung and wife Kim Hye-kyung, who were scheduled to attend the youth meeting and national women’s convention, were hospitalized after a fall accident, and the schedule was completely canceled.
According to a camp official, Kim hit the floor with vomiting, dizziness and temporary loss of consciousness, and is resting at home after receiving sutures after being hospitalized.
Candidate Lee posted on SNS, saying, “I want to be a husband of one person before I become a presidential candidate,” and “I want to be with my wife despite the apologetics.”
On the 12th, starting from Busan, Ulsan, and Gyeongsangnam-do, candidate Lee plans to get on the public bus every week to listen to the public opinion of the nation.
Meanwhile, candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, the People’s Power candidate, visited the April 19 Student Revolution Monument and delivered a message saying, “We will not forget the spirit of the April 19 Revolution and establish liberal democracy.”
It is interpreted to emphasize the will to protect democracy and the Constitution a day ahead of the promised Gwangju City after ‘Chun Doo-hwan’s remarks’.
The 56th National Women’s Congress would have been the first encounter with four presidential candidates from major political parties had Lee Jae-myung attended.
