The National Assembly opens its extraordinary session for the month of July on this Monday, and the ruling and opposition sides are expected to continue lock horns over a special bill on April's ferry disaster.
The rival parties, who had previously set July 16th as the date to pass the bill, failed to resume negotiations on narrowing their differences over the weekend.
The floor leaders of the two sides will attempt to break the impasse at their weekly meeting later this Monday morning (11 a.m.).
The main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy wants the probe committee, contained in the bill, to be given investigative authority, while the ruling Saenuri Party opposes it.
Three opposition lawmakers have joined the families of the ferry disaster victims in a hunger strike in front of the National Assembly, calling for a swift passage of the bill.
