[The Hankyoreh, October 15 2007] UNDP primary is all for naught

The UNDP was able to save face by holding a mobile primary, a vote-by-phone gimmick that dramatically increased voter turnout and raised the hope that it would also generate excitement, but controversy over the illegal mobilization of voters tainted the race. The party’s desire to impress people and collect votes through a “beautiful primary” has come to nothing.
