President Moon Jae-in has officially appointed Park Beom-kye as his new justice minister on Wednesday.

Park will start work on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, the National Assembly's Legislation and Judiciary Committee adopted a confirmation hearing report on Park.

The main opposition People Power Party boycotted the committee vote in protest.

Park's appointment makes him the 27th minister of the current administration to take their post without real agreement from the opposition.
