The National Assembly is set to hold confirmation hearings for five minister nominees on Tuesday.
Land Minister nominee Noh Hyeong-ouk is expected to face questions from lawmakers on how he will prevent real estate speculation by public officials following a recent scandal centered on Korea Land and Housing Corporation(LH) employees.
Also facing hearings are Trade Minister nominee Moon Sung-wook, Science Minister nominee Lim Hye-sook, Employment Minister nominee An Kyung-duk, and Oceans and Fisheries Minister nominee Park Jun-young.
The main opposition People Power Party(PPP) is expected to highlight the allegations of ethical lapses raised against some of the nominees and their spouses.
The five were nominated in a Cabinet reshuffle last month in the wake of the ruling Democratic Party’s wide defeat to the PPP at the by-elections earlier that month.
Meanwhile, a parliamentary confirmation hearing for Prime Minister nominee Kim Boo-kyum will be held on Thursday and Friday.
