The National Assembly has passed key pending bills aimed at improving welfare and rooting out corruption among public officials.

The parliament held a plenary session on Tuesday, the last day of the National Assembly's regular session, to pass a revision to the National Basic Living Security Act and the Emergency Aid and Support Act to make more people eligible for social security.

The revision will expand the scope of the national basic livelihood social security system by easing the income requirements for the beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, the parliament passed another bill aimed at further restricting government officials from taking positions related to their former duties after retiring.

In addition, the revision of the law on public officials' ethics calls for extending the restriction period from the current two years to three years after retirement. 

The assembly also passed a special bill aimed at compensating 18-thousand test takers who were affected by a flawed question on last year’s state college entrance exam.

The parliament passed a total of 138 bills and motions during Tuesday's plenary session. The National Assembly will begin an extraordinary session on December 15 to handle the remaining bills and motions.
