Our top story this morning
In just a little under twenty hours from now, some thirteen-thousand polling booths around Korea will open for citizens to cast their votes in the June 4th local elections.
The country's rival political parties are engaged in one final push to win the hearts of undecided voters on this Tuesday,.. the last day of the 13-day campaigning period.
Safety issues and measures to address them continue to be the main focus of campaigns in light of last month's tragic Sewol-ho ferry sinking.
These elections are increasingly being seen as a vote of confidence for the Park Geun-hye administration.
The ruling Saenuri Party is calling on the public to give them one more chance to revamp and reform the government in the wake of the ferry disaster.
The main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy is calling on voters to hold the ruling party responsible for the government's poor handling of the tragedy.
Polling stations open at 6am on Wednesday and close at 6pm and we'll be bringing you updates throughout the day.
