In addition, Democratic Party lawmaker Kim Yong-min proposed an amendment to the law to limit the president’s right to request reconsideration (veto right) of the bill passed by the National Assembly, causing controversy. Since it was intended to limit the president’s veto power by amending the National Assembly Act, even within the Democratic Party immediately pointed out that it was “unconstitutional.” Some Democratic Party lawmakers who openly propose bills targeting President Yoon Seok-yeol are criticized for “even the bill proposal is too light and strategic토스카지노.”
On the 17th, Rep. Kim, a former lawyer and a member of the Like-Hoe, proposed an amendment to the law to prevent the president from exercising his or her veto power in the event of a conflict of interest. It was interpreted that it was to prevent the Democratic Party from exercising its right to veto the ‘Special Prosecutor Act on First Lady Kim Gun-hee’, which was enforced by the Democratic Party. Hwang Un-ha, Min Hyung-bae, Choi Kang-wook, and other members of the Like-Hoe were listed as co-sponsors.
The president’s veto power is a power enshrined in the Constitution. A key official of the Democratic Party said, “It is unconstitutional without looking at it because it is intended to limit the upper law constitution with the lower law, the National Assembly Act.” However, on the list of co-sponsors, the party leadership, Kim Min-seok, chairman of the Policy Committee, was also listed. Policy Committee Chairman Kim said, “It was not discussed with the leadership, but (law revision) was deemed necessary.” Another party official said, “Isn’t it a simple example of a bill that seems unconstitutional, and if the council pushes forward, even the party leadership is dragged away?”
Rep. Kim proposed the amendment to the law immediately after President Yoon exercised his veto power over bills that the Democratic Party alone enforced, such as the Grain Management Act and the Nursing Act. It means that the law will bind President Yoon’s hands and feet.
In the Democratic Party, a law has recently been proposed to limit President Yoon’s authority. Rep. Kim Seung-won, a former judge and head of the Democratic Party’s legal committee, proposed an amendment to the Amnesty Act in March to limit the right to pardon if the president’s pardon does not meet a certain sentence or is a relative of the president. Rep. Choi Gi-sang, a former judge, also proposed a bill to limit the president’s right to appoint the chief justice of the Supreme Court the same month. Currently, the president can nominate a candidate for the chief justice of the Supreme Court, but by changing the law, a separate committee for recommending the chief justice of the Supreme Court is set aside and the president recommends a candidate. Rep. Choi Jae-hyung, a former judge and member of the People’s Power, said, “The foundation of the country is shaken because those who take the constitution lightly do politics.”
