South Korean media reported that South Korean Presidential Palace Qingwatai said on the 6th that Congress did not find a strong questioning of the personnel hearing of Cao Guo, the nominee of the Minister of Justice, to shake his qualifications. The position of Qingwatai to appoint Cao Guo as the Minister of Justice remains unchanged.
South Korea’s “Central Daily News” reported on the front page today that after 23 days, the congressional personnel hearing of Cao Guo, the nominee of the Minister of Justice, was finally convened, but it failed to dispel the public’s doubts about Cao Guo and his family. There was no gain in the empty war of words.
The report pointed out that Cao Guo’s wife, Zheng Jingxin, who worked at Toyo University, was around 10:50 pm on the evening of the 6th day before the end of Cao’s congressional personnel hearing. The prosecution’s pleading for the daughter’s falsification of the Toyo University President’s commendation was “ The suspicion of forgery of the instrument, sued Zheng Jingxin in lightning.
Zheng Jingxin was suspected of having falsified her daughter’s commendation in the name of the president of Toyo University on September 7, 2012. This document played a key role in her daughter’s enrollment at the Busan University School of Medicine (Institute).
The report said that senior officials of Qingwatai said on the 6th that Cao Guo had raised new questions after the press conference on the 2nd, but it seems that the nominee has not violated the law. This statement implied that the presidential office insisted on the appointment of Cao Guo as the Minister of Justice.
On the 6th, the South Korean President Wen Zai, who returned to Seoul on the 6th, will discuss the issue of Cao Guo with the staff on the basis of the personnel hearing results.
The report pointed out that Wen Zai has the right to appoint Cao Guo as the Minister of Justice from 0:00 on the 7th, but it is not easy to appoint immediately on the day after the hearing. Even if Congress fails to submit a hearing report within the statutory time limit, Qingwatai may reserve time for discussion in the ruling and opposition parties.
At present, the opposition to the appointment of Cao Guo has become stronger, supporting the weakening of public opinion, which may affect the appointment time of Qingwatai. Qingwatai is paying close attention to public opinion.
The report pointed out that senior officials of Qingwatai said that the wave of the two days may have an impact on public opinion, and the clarification of the nominees at the hearing also provided advantages. Wen Zai is expected to approve the appointment on the 9th of the first working day after returning to China, so that Cao Guo will attend the 10th State Council as a minister.
