Three-quarters of Koreans favor Constitutional revision: Survey Updated: 2017-07-17 00:41:40 KST

A new survey shows more than three-quarters of Koreans are in favor of revising the Constitution.
The poll by Hankook Research, commissioned by the National Assembly Speaker's Office, on one-thousand Koreans nationwide shows 75.four percent support a revision.
As for why, the respondents cited the need to make decades-old laws relevant to changes in modern society, as well as to divide and limit the power of the president.
Less than 15 percent were against it -- saying problems are related with the application of the law, not the Constitution itself.
As for the preferred governing structure, almost half said they want the president and the prime minister to share the responsibility of running the country.
The government is pushing for a referendum on a Constitutional revision alongside local elections slated for June next year.
