Former vice minister to head communications watchdog

President Lee Myung-bak named a former communications technocrat as Korea’s chief broadcasting and communications regulator, the presidential spokesman said yesterday.

Lee Kye-cheol, 72, who served as vice minister of the now-defunct Information and Communications Ministry in the mid-1990s, will replace Choi See-joong as chief of the Korea Communications Commission, presidential spokesman Park Jeong-ha said.

Choi, a close confidant of Lee, quit last month amid a corruption scandal involving an aide.
