With the presidential election just nine days away, South Korea has begun printing the ballots for voters on Sunday, the country’s election watchdog said.
Printing houses designated by the National Election Commission’s (NEC) regional branches will take two days to complete the work and should be able to show the ballots seven days before the elections set for May 9 as required by the country’s election law, according to the NEC.
“The candidate leading in the polls, Moon Jae-in, called for an immediate suspension of the Thaad deployment. Mr. Moon, a liberal, had already pledged to review South Korea’s decision to accept the system if elected. He said Park Geun-hye, the conservative president who was ousted in March over a corruption scandal, should have sought Parliament’s approval before agreeing to the deployment.” (New York Times)
