[The Chosun Ilbo, October 26 2007] Election Commission ‘Keeping an Eye on Roh’

National Election Commissioner Koh Hyeon-chul said Thursday his agency will keep an eye on whether President Roh Moo-hyun honors his obligation to stay neutral in the presidential campaign. The NEC chief said his agency will take appropriate actions if necessary. Asked at a meeting of an election advisory committee at the Korea Press Center what the commission will do if the president continues to make remarks supportive of one presidential candidate or disparaging of another, Koh said officials “have to respect the obligation to stay away from elections.”
