The main opposition Liberty Korea Party announced Monday its decision to end its boycott of parliamentary activities.
The National Assembly has been idle since Jan. 24 amid tensions over a raft of allegations of government abuse of power, a controversial appointment and a former ruling party lawmaker’s purchases of properties in cultural zones.
“We’ve decided to open parliament. We will submit a request to convene the National Assembly today,” LKP floor leader Na Kyung-won told a press conference.
“As a responsible opposition party, we’ve made the decision because we have nothing to expect from the ruling Democratic Party” she added. (Yonhap)
