Yoon Suk-yeol holds rallies in Chungcheong, vowing to become ‘unit president’

Yoon Suk-yeol of the main opposition People Power Party held rallies in Chungcheongnam-do province on Tuesday during this election.
In the region that has no traditional political allegiance to either side, Yoon tried to make a connection by introducing himself as the “son of Chungcheong”.
His father was born in the province.

Yoon’s first stop was Solmae Shrine, the birthplace of Korean Catholicism.
It was a symbolic choice that represented his central message throughout the day of national unity.
Yoon has repeatedly called for the need for unity, adding that balanced national growth is the key to achieving it.
And he challenged the public in the cities of Dangjin, Seosan and Hongseong by promising to make the region a tourist and industrial hub.

“We will develop the industry and economy of this region by completing Seosan Airport and the railway connecting the east and west of the central region as soon as possible.”

As part of his vision to boost regional development, Yoon Suk-yeol traveled to the tourist town of Boryeong, which has become internationally renowned for its mud festival.

“Due to COVID-19, the mud festival has been held online for two years and the whole local economy has stagnated.
Yoon Suk-yeol promises to bring back the festival and revitalize the economy once again.”

Besides unifying the country through balanced growth, Yoon also promised a more integrated policy.

“If I were to take over the next administration, I would cooperate with sensible Democratic Party lawmakers and lead the country’s development driven by integrated policy.”

In fact, Yoon had repeatedly shown his respect to former presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, both from his rival democratic liberal bloc.
He then moved to the liberal province stronghold of Jeollabuk-do and vowed to end regionalism in politics and become a unity president.
