As the 21st National Assembly officially opened Thursday, speaker Park Byeong-seug stressed the importance of creating a parliament that prioritizes people's livelihoods.
Park said the new assembly must act as a "melting pot" that listens to and puts forward the voices of the citizens, and rids itself of past malpractices.
He called for the swift installation of a parliamentary committee aimed at overcoming the economic damage from COVID-19, and to proceed with legislation that advances the nation into the 4th industrial revolution.
Park urged lawmakers to work together to prioritize the nation's best interests rather than those of their respective party's.
