President Park Geun-hye to meet with floor leaders ThursdayUpdated: 2014-07-10 07:01:48 (KST)
President Park Geun-hye is preparing to sit down with the floor leaders and chief policymakers of Korea's two main political parties at the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae on this Thursday morning.
Topping the agenda at the meeting will be pending parliamentary issues, including proposed bills on measures designed to address the safety shortcomings that were exposed in April's ferry disaster and anti-lobbying legislation.
The president is also expected to lean on the parliament to pass bills aimed at boosting economic growth.
The main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy is widely expected to use the opportunity to criticize the presidential office for its recent Cabinet nominee choices.
This morning's meeting will be the first between President Park and the leaders of both main political parties since she took office more than a year ago.
