UPP's Lee Jung-hee quits the presidential race
With South Korea's presidential election only three days away, Lee Jung-hee, a left-leaning candidate from a minor party, decided to quit the race on Sunday. Lee from the Unified Progressive Party made the decision in an emergency camp meeting earlier on Sunday and she will not attend the televised debate scheduled for 8:00 p.m., her aides said. Lee's resignation came as the Dec. 19 presidential election is expected to be a close race between ruling-party candidate Park Geun-hye and leading opposition party candidate Moon Jae-in.
