Resignation of Candidate for Seoul Mayor Called for in S. Korea

Pyongyang, October 25 (KCNA) -- A deputy spokesman for the Democratic Labor Party of south Korea in a commentary Monday disclosed irregularities and corruption perpetrated by Ra Kyong Won, a lawmaker from the "Grand National Party" who runs for Seoul mayoral election.

The commentary recalled that Ra in a radio appearance on Oct. 18 tried to dodge her responsibility, uttering she cannot confirm every case in which she received political fund from teachers of a school where she holds the post of a director.

A report she submitted to the Central Election Management Committee in 2004 registers details including the amount of the money she got from 88 teachers and their phone numbers, etc, the commentary noted, and went on:

This being a hard reality, Ra told the above-said lie. She is not qualified to be a candidate for the mayor.

It demanded her stop making a mockery of the citizens and drop her candidacy.
