Prime Minister vows new gov't-civilian committee on national reformsUpdated: 2014-07-08 15:00:01 KST
With President Park's post-ferry disaster government restructuring plan and public sector reforms delayed by Cabinet appointment failures and a parliamentary deadlock over related bills, the prime minister has vowed to set up a national reform committee.
In an address to the nation earlier this Tuesday, Prime Minister Chung Hong-won said both the government and civilians will take part in the committee, which will gather public opinion on reforms, ways to improve national safety and rooting out social corruption.
Chung then said a master plan on safety innovation will be finalized by next February.
Promising to set a framework for public reform within the month, the prime minister also urged the parliament to support an immediate passage of government restructuring and reform-related bills.
