Parties fail to narrow differences on hearing report for Supreme Court Chief nominee Updated: 2017-09-14 11:54:28 KST

Korea's rival political parties have failed to adopt a confirmation hearing report for President Moon's pick for Supreme Court chief, Kim Meong-su.
Kim's hearing was held earlier this week, however, the parties failed to narrow their differences over the nominee's fitness for the job.
The ruling party insists the candidate has no ethical issues and is fit for the position.
The opposition, however, said he wasn't able to show he was capable, nor did they trust that he would be politically neutral.
It remains to be seen whether rival parties will agree to convene a meeting today in a bid to issue a report.
This comes a day after the National Assembly adopted a negative assessment of SME and startups ministry nominee Park Seong-jin, calling him unfit over his controversial religious views as well as allegations of past misdeeds.
The ball is now in the hands of the Blue House, as ministerial posts do not require parliamentary consent.
