Maverick independent lawmaker Ahn Cheol-soo has a dream of shaking up Korean politics. and now his new party, which will officially launch next month, has a name -- the New Political Vision Party.
The name was officially approved at a party meeting in Seoul on Monday, where Ahn and some 3-hundred-twenty members started laying the groundwork for the party's upcoming launch.
Ahn's supporters established a central steering committee that will be the top decision-making body over the next few weeks.
The former independent presidential candidate and his aides also agreed to work on ways to boost party membership nationwide ahead of local elections in June.
