Lawmakers Ahn Cheol-soo and Kim Han-gil will co-head Korea's new opposition party, dubbed "New Politics Alliance for Democracy," which officially launches on Wednesday afternoon.
Announcing its structural and operational plans at the National Assembly on Tuesday, officials said Ahn and Kim will head the party for one year until it elects a party chairman and leadership next year.
The new party will select candidates to stand in the upcoming June local elections through inter-party primaries and votes by the general public.
The launching ceremony, which will be attended by citizens from all walks of life, gets underway at 2pm, Korea time, in southern Seoul.
