Poll: 75% of S. Koreans Approve of Constitutional Revision

A survey finds that seven out of ten South Koreans approve of a constitutional revision and about half of South Koreans prefer a semi-presidential system.

That's according to the the office of National Assembly Speaker Chung Sye-kyun, which commissioned an opinion poll on one-thousand adults nationwide for two days from Wednesday last week.

More than 75 percent approved of constitutional revision and such responses were equally high among various groups regardless of their gender, age, region or ideology. Fourteen-point-five percent opposed it.
 
Around 46 percent preferred a semi-presidential system through the revision, in which a president is elected by the people and a prime minister is chosen by the parliament. About 38 percent picked a presidential system while 13 percent preferred a parliamentary system.
 
Fifty-five percent of those who preferred a semi-presidential system said that the president should have greater authority than the prime minister, while 42 percent said otherwise.
 
Sixty-seven percent of the respondents approved of a runoff voting system in presidential elections.
 
The survey had a 95 percent confidence level with a margin of error of plus or minus three-point-one percentage points.
