About our 2024 South Korea Elections news

Latest news on 2024 South Korean elections, legislative election results, exit polls, candidate updates, voter turnout, and key issues concerning democracy and governance.

The 2024 South Korean legislative elections, held on April 10th, were a pivotal event in the nation's political landscape. These elections determined the composition of the 300-seat National Assembly, with citizens casting their votes for representatives in 254 constituencies and 46 proportional representation seats.

The elections witnessed a significant shift in power, with the opposition Democratic Alliance emerging as the frontrunner, according to exit polls. Led by Lee Jae-myung, the Alliance is projected to secure between 168 to 197 seats, while the ruling People Power Party, under Han Dong-hoon, is expected to win 85 to 111 seats. Notably, the new Rebuilding Korea Party, led by Cho Kuk, contested only the proportional representation seats and is forecast to win 15 seats, marking its debut in the National Assembly.

Beyond the numbers, these elections have sparked discussions on various socio-political issues, including corruption allegations against high-profile figures, the rising cost of living, and the government's handling of the ongoing doctors' strike. The "green onion controversy," which erupted after President Yoon Suk-yeol's remarks about vegetable prices, added an unusual dimension to the campaign trail and captured the nation's attention.

South Korea's legislative elections have a rich history, dating back to the establishment of the National Assembly in 1948. Over the decades, the electoral process has evolved, reflecting the country's democratic journey and shaping its political landscape. The 2024 elections are a testament to South Korea's commitment to representative governance and the peaceful transfer of power.

As the results unfold and a new National Assembly takes shape, the NewsNow feed on the 2024 South Korean elections remains a reliable source for comprehensive, up-to-date coverage from trusted media outlets. Stay informed about the latest developments, analysis, and implications of this pivotal event in South Korean politics.
