South Korea ruling party offers humility before presidential vote

Voters have grown disillusioned with Democratic Party's double moral standards

Song Young-gil, the leader of South Korea's ruling Democratic Party, has announced a number of decisions aimed at curbing criticism from younger generations.

SEOUL -- With one month to go before South Korea's presidential election, the ruling Democratic Party is making desperate efforts to drive up public support for its candidate.

Song Young-gil, the party's leader, announced on Jan. 25 that he will not run in the next National Assembly elections in 2024 and also promised that the party will stay out of by-elections scheduled with the March 9 presidential election.
