President Yoon Appoints Yoon Hee-keun as New Police Chief Updated: 2022-08-10 17:06:00 KST

President Yoon Suk-yeol has decided to go ahead with the appointment of Yoon Hee-keun, deputy commissioner general of the National Police Agency, as his new police chief without a parliamentary confirmation hearing report.
The President presented Yoon with a letter of appointment on Wednesday, making the new police chief the eleventh high-ranking official in the administration to be installed without parliamentary approval.
In Monday's confirmation hearing for the police chief, the parliament's Public Administration and Security Committee failed to a adopt a report on the hearing as the rival parties were unable to narrow their differences.
Seoul's top office said President Yoon decided to push ahead with the appointment because he thought he couldn't allow a prolonged vacuum in public safety.
