Yoon Seok-yeol recruits ‘feminist’ Shin Ji-ye “We need to broaden our support base and expand our philosophy”
Power of the People As an organization directly under the candidacy of presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, the New Era Preparation Committee led by former Democratic Party leader Kim Han-gil has hired Shin Ji-ye, president of the Korean Women’s Politics Network, as senior vice-chairman.
Shin, who was born in 1990 and is 31 this year, started his political career as a representative of the Korea Youth Association in 2004 and ran as a candidate for the Green Party in the 2016 and 2020 National Assembly elections and the 2018 Seoul mayoral election.
Shin is well-known as a ‘feminist’ by making the election slogan “Feminist mayor of Seoul” as an election slogan.
Representative Shin, who attended the welcome ceremony of the New Era Preparation Committee with Candidate Yoon and Representative Kim, said, “There were many concerns. We decided to do it together.”
Candidate Yoon also said, “I am grateful that you made a very difficult decision.”
In response to the point that many people with different opinions and powers of the people come to the ranks of the immediate predecessor, and their identity can be shaken, Candidate Yoon explained, “In a party, a party that realizes democracy can only become a party that realizes democracy only when people with different opinions discuss it and come to a conclusion.” I did.
In a video uploaded on the 9th, Shin said, “Why aren’t the presidential candidates interested in women’s votes? The recent political backlash starts with the People’s Power, Party Leader Lee Jun-seok.” “The process of the first election of the party leader in his 30s It is because a community site called ‘Femco’ has made a great contribution to this,” he pointed out, pointing out that the online community mainly used by men in their 2030s is the basis for Lee’s support.
In July, Shin held a press conference in front of the People’s Power of Yeongdeungpo-gu, saying, “I condemn the hate politics that promote gender conflict with the promise to abolish the Ministry of Leisure.”
