Saenuri's Non-Park Group to Decide on Defection Wednesday

Large numbers of the ruling Saenuri Party, including its former leader Kim Moo-sung, plan to decide by Wednesday whether they will break away from the party.

The move comes after the party's pro-Park faction rejected the non-Park faction's proposal that Representative Yoo Seung-min, a non-Park legislator, be appointed as the party's interim leader. 

Spokesman for the Non-Park lawmakers, Hwang Young-cheul, said they cannot wait any longer and that it's time to act. 

He said more than 20 lawmakers may leave the party some time this week.

That number is sufficient to form a floor negotiation group and continue to exert influence over legislative matters.
