Competition heats up as July 30 by-election draws near
Every second counts for the candidates running in an upcoming by-election on July 30th, and the competition is heating up.
Ruling Saenuri Party chairman Kim Moo-sung and party officials are busy attending campaign events to shore up support for conservative candidates.
The main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy is aiming to win seats once held by Saenuri Party lawmakers.
They are centering their efforts on the government's mishandling of the Sewol-ho ferry tragedy, with co-chairs Kim Han-gil and Ahn Cheol-soo vowing to go on a hunger strike to urge the Park Geun-hye administration to deal with the matter.
The main opposition party is considered to be at a disadvantage in the coming by-election, with none of its candidates having a clear lead, except in the party's traditional stronghold in the Jeolla-do provinces.
