Merger meeting


Leaders of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party and two minor conservative parties - the New Conservative Party and Onward for Future 4.0 - pose for a group photo in the National Assembly in Yeouido, western Seoul, on Friday.

It was their first meeting to discuss how to actually merge. They decided to set the name of the envisioned party as the Party for Future Integration. The main color representing the party will be millennial pink.

The New Conservative Party was launched in early January by Rep. Yoo Seong-min and seven other lawmakers who defected from the minor opposition Bareunmirae Party (BP). Onward for Future 4.0 was created by Rep. Lee Un-ju, a former BP lawmaker.

If the three parties merge, the number of their total lawmakers will rise to 115 in the 295-member National Assembly. The ruling Democratic Party controls 129 seats. [NEWS1]
