PM: Gov't Respects Constitutional Court's Ruling to Disband UPP

The South Korean government said Friday it respects the ruling by the Constitutional Court to disband the minor opposition Unified Progressive Party (UPP).
 
In a statement, Prime Minister Chung Hong-won said the court decision clearly confirmed that UPP tried to use violence to overturn the liberal democratic system and realize North Korean-type socialism.
 
The prime minister said the government respects the court's ruling that UPP's goals and activities violate the Republic of Korea's democratic order.
 
Chung also said in the statement the latest decision should serve as an opportunity to enhance social integration and to solidify the basic order of liberal democracy. He also asked individuals and organizations that had a different understanding in the Constitutional Court's decision-making process to respect its decision and solemnly accept it.
 
The prime minister also said the government will not tolerate and sternly respond to any attempts or activities that deny the country's legitimacy, and damage or challenge its liberal democratic system.
 
With the court's decision to disband the party, Chung said the government will proceed with follow-up measures as planned, with the help of the Central Election Management Committee.
