KBS Accuses Political Camp of Reneging on Its Promises
Pyongyang, January 9 (KCNA) -- The south Korean KBS Monday accused the political camp of having reneged on its promises.

The broadcasting recalled that both ruling and opposition parties were vocal that they would reform their policies without fail during the "presidential" election campaign.

Their pledges to downgrade the privileged position of the lawmakers have already proved to be false, it deplored.

A pension budget for lawmakers which calls for paying 1.2 million won a month to each legislator bearing a "National Assembly" member badge even a day passed through the NA, noted the KBS, saying this touched off a firestorm of protest among different circles.
