Top Office Apologizes for Personnel Appointment Controversy

Presidential Chief of Staff Im Jong-seok on Friday expressed apology to the people for causing controversy over the nomination of a Cabinet minister. 
Park Seong-jin, who was nominated to head the SMEs and Startups Ministry, has withdrawn himself from consideration for the job, saying he respects the decision of the National Assembly. The Assembly earlier adopted a confirmation hearing report stating that Park was unfit for the post, citing his religious and historical views.
Im said the top office also respects parliament’s decision and will listen to the National Assembly’s voice more closely from now on.
Im then urged the National Assembly to approve before September 24th a motion seeking approval of the nomination of Supreme Court Chief Justice nominee Kim Meong-su so that a vacuum does not occur in the top post of the judiciary branch.
