Resignation of Provincial Governor Demanded in S. Korea
Pyongyang, May 28 (KCNA) -- South Kyongsang provincial organizations in south Korea staged an action before the provincial office building on May 24 demanding the resignation of its governor of the "Saenuri Party" involved in the illegal political fund case.

Hong Jun Phyo, governor of the province from the "Saenuri" Party", is suspected of receiving 100 million won from Song Wan Jong, former chairman of Kyongnam Business, in the run-up to the election of representative of the "Saenuri Party" in 2011. This was disclosed through commentaries, press conferences and meetings

But the prosecution decided on non-restraint prosecution..

The organizations demanded the governor give up his political ambition and immediately step down.

The Democratic Alliance for New Politics said on May 21 that it is more than 40 days since the disclosure of the Song Wan Jong case in which the Park Geun Hye group received a ridiculous amount of illicit political funds but no criminal has been detained.

The party demanded the ruling party accept a special investigation for thoroughly looking into the above-said case.
