The first parliamentary inspection of government offices under the Moon Jae-in government is set to begin on Thursday. Rival parties are expected to engage in a fierce political battle over security issues, real estate policies and alleged irregularities of past governments.
 
The inspections will be held for 20 days on 701 government agencies.
 
The ruling Democratic Party plans to highlight irregularities committed under conservative administrations, while the opposition bloc has vowed to focus on the Moon government's incompetency regarding security and economy issues. 
 
The largest opposition Liberty Korea Party is determined to dig up dirt on the past governments of Roh Moo-hyun and Kim Dae-jung. 
 
Government offices subject to the inspections on Thursday include the Supreme Court and the ministries of defense, land and transport, and trade, industry and energy. 
 
The audit of the Supreme Court will likely focus on suspicions that the previous Supreme Court chief was involved in the creation of a so-called blacklist of judges containing their political biases. The Moon government's security policies and the military's alleged online smear campaign under the Lee Myung-bak government are expected to dominate inspections of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. 
 
Rival parties are also likely to clash over planned talks to revise the free trade agreement with the U.S., and the government's policy to phase out nuclear power plants.
 
Following the official 20-day inspection, the parliament is scheduled to audit the National Intelligence Service on November first and the presidential office on the sixth.
