The Science and Technology Information Broadcasting and Communications Committee of the National Assembly has been unable to hold a proper meeting for two months after Rep. Jang Je-won, the power of the people, was elected as the chairman at the end of May. Over-defense is one of the standing committees in which the ruling and opposition parties are in fierce confrontation over issues such as the expedited handling of the Space and Aviation Administration special law, the issue of collecting KBS license fees, and the controversy over the successor chairman of the Korea Communications Commission.
In response, Chairman Jang even hit Bae Jin-jin on the 23rd, saying, “If the Korea Aerospace Administration Act is passed within August, I will resign as the chairman as the Democratic Party wants,” but the Democratic Party protested, saying, “It is a group to pass the law with a deadline set.”
Conflict between the ruling and opposition parties began in March when the Democratic Party’s direct referral to the broadcasting law plenary session. The power of the people submitted a judgment on the power dispute to the Constitutional Court against the chairman of the National Assembly and the chairman of the National Assembly at the time of Chung온라인카지노 Cheong-rae, a member of the Democratic Party. Afterwards, the head of the over-defense committee was changed to Rep. Je-won Jang, the power of the people, and on the 14th of last month, chairman Jang dismissed the over-defense legal representative appointed by former chairman Chung Cheong-rae.
Because of this, the first over-defense plenary meeting held after the election of Chairman Jang on the 22nd of last month was disrupted. The power of the people said, “Let’s start with the Space Aviation Administration bill,” and the Democratic Party responded, saying, “ Let’s inquire about pending issues related to contaminated water at the Fukushima nuclear power plant and KBS license fees,” and they couldn’t even set the agenda for the meeting.
At the beginning of this month, the ruling and opposition parties held their first meeting between Chairman Jang and secretaries of the ruling and opposition parties, but negotiations broke down. The Democratic Party demanded an apology from the chairman for the over-defense, withdrawal of the appointment of a lawyer for the constitutional court judgment related to the broadcasting law, and that the president not appoint Lee Dong-gwan, special adviser for foreign cooperation, as the chairman of the broadcasting committee, and the people’s strength was rejected.
The second round of negotiations on the 13th broke down due to the handling of the KBS subscription fee ‘integrated collection’ broadcasting law proposed by the Democratic Party on the 7th . When the government amended the enforcement decree on the 11th to allow ‘separate collection’ of KBS license fees, the Democratic Party is opposed.
Chairman Jang said, “I proposed an arbitration plan on the 17th, such as expressing regret for the chairman, but the Democratic Party rejected it,” and said, “It is the intention to finally interfere with the government’s state affairs task (establishment of the Korea Aerospace Aviation Administration).” He announced that he would hold an over-defence plenary meeting on the 26th with the authority of the chairman.
Rep. Cho Seung-rae, secretary of the Democratic Party of Defense, said in a phone call, “In the previous negotiations,’Let’s conclude a bill related to the Space Aviation Administration as soon as possible’, and at the same time, we decided to discuss controversial bills such as the Broadcasting Act, the Fake News Prevention Act, and the Network Fees Act.” Members of the Democratic Party’s defense committee are considering not attending the plenary meeting on the 26th.
