"Panmunjom Shooting Plot" Causes Political Rift, Again

Dec 01,1998
The political situation is once again mired in tension as revelations over the 'Panmumjom Shooting Plot' surface.
The opposition Grand National Party (GNP) expressed strong opposition to the recent decision by the prosecutor's office to investigate Lee Hoi Chang, the GNP's president.
Lee said, 'I feel really angry about the attempt of the ruling National Congress of New Politics (NCNP) to damage and malign our party just at the moment of our new start.' The GNP feels that the NCNP brought up the alleged plot again to use as a bargaining card in budget negotiations.
Park Hee Tae, the minority leader of the GNP expressed its strong stance by saying, 'It is difficult to pass a budget bill within the time limit. We can be flexible about the name and time of economic hearings but the principle that the number of members from the ruling and opposition parties should be the same is not negotiable.'
Park Jie Won, a Chung Wa Dae spokesman said, 'Both sides agreed that they will wait for the result of the judges.' Han Hwa Gap, the majority leader of the NCNP, 'The political situation is expected to deteriorate'
