Third day since President Yoon Suk-yeol took office,
and already more than half of his cabinet seats have been filled.
The latest additions were made on Thursday evening: SME Minister Lee Young and Industry Minister Lee Chang-yang.
Four Cabinet seats were filled on Thursday alone, with Foreign and Interior Ministers Park Jin and Lee Sang-min having been added to the team earlier in the day.
But some say Yoon is rushing to fill his cabinet.
Yoon’s decision to appoint Park Jin and Lee Sang-min as ministers particularly fueled criticism, as Yoon decided to press ahead with the nominations despite the delay in National Assembly approval.
Considering how long it took previous administrations to complete their starting cabinets, Yoon is moving at a faster pace to fill his.
Some speculate that the rush was linked to Yoon’s first cabinet meeting on Thursday.
The meeting discussed a point that Yoon had repeatedly stressed that there was an urgent need to charge extra budget for businesses affected by the pandemic.
And to summon, Yoon needed a minimum of 11 people present.
With newly appointed ministers Park Jin and Lee Sang-min and two administration ministers Moon Jae-in joining the meeting, Yoon had just passed the limit – with 12 attendees.
SME Minister Lee Young and Industry Minister Lee Chang-yang were not present, as their appointments were made after the meeting.
A presidential office official said Thursday that the administration is primarily focused on continuing the business of the state without any delays as the country goes through difficult economic times and has two monumental events – the United States -South Korea and the local elections. – coming.
But appointing a new prime minister may take longer as ruling and opposition parties remain in a contentious stalemate over Yoon’s chosen candidate, Han Duck-soo.
