The South Korean opposition party militant stressed that the president “is defying the will of the people lately,” while stressing that Lee’s retirement “must take priority.”

Previously, the National Assembly approved this Thursday to carry out a parliamentary investigative process that will last 45 days to clarify the circumstances of the tragic events that caused the death of almost 160 people.

The entities subject to investigation are the presidential state affairs team, the national crisis management centre, the Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministries of the Interior, Security, Health and Social Welfare, the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office, the Police, the Fire Department, the Government of Seoul and Yongsan District.

The investigation will focus on clarifying the fact that they did not act with foresight despite the fact that there was a prior warning about the possibility of security accidents in Itaewon due to the expected massive attendance for the Halloween festivities.
