SEOUL -- Yoon Suk-yeol, the presidential candidate for South Korea's main opposite conservative party, said Wednesday he had dissolved his campaign team after losing ground in recent polls for the March 9 election.

"The committee, dubbed as a mammoth, failed to find out what people want," Yoon told reporters at the office of the People Power Party in Seoul. "I will make a working-level election team, letting talented young officials lead it."
