President Moon electronically signs gov’t proposal for Constitutional amendment

September 24, 2019

While he’s overseas, President Moon electronically
signed his administration’s proposal for amending the Constitution. And the bill has now been submitted to the
National Assembly, to be reviewed and voted on in the next 60 days. Opposition parties are firmly against this
move by the administration, but President Moon released a statement defending it. He called it a promise made to the public,
and insisted the referendum must take place in tandem with the local elections in June,
or else it will cost an extra 110 million U.S. dollars. The liberal leader also emphasized the Constitution
must reflect the rights of the people and the responsibilities of the government in
keeping with the times,… describing the last ammendment made 3-decades ago… as outdated
and incapable of doing so.
