Young head of South Korea's ruling party ousted by old-timers - Nikkei Asia

Quick Summary AI Powered

The 37-year-old Lee helped the conservative People Power Party win the presidential election in March and the unified local elections in June by attracting young voters.

Lee Jun-seok, chairman of South Korea's ruling People Power Party, speaks at a news conference after he was disciplined by the party's ethics committee on July 8.

The disciplinary action by the party's ethics panel was ostensibly for his alleged receipt of sexual bribery in 2013, but the truth is that Lee fell victim to political infighting with older party members who were worried about the growing power of young leaders in the party.
