The main opposition Liberty Korea Party is soon expected to scrap its planned filibuster against fast-tracked election and criminal justice reform bills.
The ruling Democratic Party reportedly agreed on Friday not to put the disputed bills to a vote during the current session that is scheduled to end Tuesday next week.
National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang is expected to mediate a meeting between the floor leaders of the ruling and opposition parties at five p.m. to finalize their compromise.
Under the mediation plan, the rival parties will vote Monday on non-contentious bills, including school zone traffic safety laws and next year's budget. Lawmakers will later deliberate on the fast-tracked reform bills when parliament opens an extraordinary session on Wednesday.
