As you can see, Candidate Seok-Yeol Yoon and former Vice Chairman Kim Jong-in are still unable to narrow the gap of their thoughts. One of the reasons is that the power of the people’s predecessors’ leadership system was designed in a complicated way. Reporter Park Won-kyung pointed out what kind of insider is contained in the structure of going down to the general election, then to the standing position, and then to the co-election chairperson again.
The leadership of the Election Countermeasures Committee, conceived by Candidate Seok-yeol Yoon for People’s Strength, has a three-level structure.
The one-top is the general election chairperson, standing under it, and again the joint election chairperson is located below it.
Major decision-making that will determine the victory or defeat of an election is made in general, but standing members also have authority at the level of representatives of the party.
The Joint Election Chairperson directs the work of each field.
However, Kim Jong-in, former chairman of the emergency response committee, opposes the title of ‘standing’.

However, it is analyzed that the reason why Candidate Yoon does not back down is that he has the intention to bring in all three seaweed including Kim Jong-in, Kim Byung-jun, and Kim Han-gil, but to check the solo drinking of a specific person.
However, in the conservative party, this system is quite different from the 2012 presidential election, which had only the co-election chairperson, and the 2017 presidential election campaign, which had the co-election chairperson under a standing position.
Compared to the Democratic Party, which has only a standing and co-election chairperson, it has a heavy head.

It is even more problematic when there is a power conflict.

The power of the people only stipulated in the party rules that the central election committee had a chairperson, but no specific organizational system was set.
As the party constitution guarantees the ‘priority of party affairs’ of presidential candidates, the candidate sets the election committee frame.
The prolonged conflict between the ‘election candidate’ and the ‘kingmaker’ is also burdensome for the candidate, so it seems difficult to wait for former Chairman Kim.
It is an evaluation that Yoon’s next choice and what kind of political power he will exert are put to the test.
