South Korea: Park plays it safe with new cabinet

Political situation in South Korea, satisfied 50%

South Korea's President-elect Park Geun-hye. Pic: AP.With just five days to go until Park Geun-Hye and her administration take their seats in South Korea’s new government, we take a look at who’s who in the key posts, and what their appointment may mean policy-wise for Korea’s next five years.

 

Prime Minister – Jung Hong-Won

 

The chairman of the Saenuri party’s election committee and one of the orchestrators of Park’s victory has been rewarded with the nomination for PM, albeit as a second choice after Kim Yong-Joon was forced to withdraw. Jung said of his nomination: “Placing an ordinary man like me in such an important position reflects that the president-elect intends to view ordinary people importantly.” This is either overly modest or a deliberate untruth as Jung must be aware of his own plentiful political experience and he is a former prosecutor with 30 years experience. The opposition DUP has already claimed he lacks political experience. An unremarkable conservative.

 

National Security Adviser – Kim Jang-Soo

 

Another ‘Team Park’ advisor who now finds himself with a permanent role. He has an impressive military CV that includes the roles of Chief of Staff and Minister of Defense. With this military background it would be easy to presume Kim to be extremely hawkish. However, he recently spoke out against calls from some quarters for South Korea to gain its own nuclear weapon. program in light of Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test.
