Factional strife for party hegemony is getting fiercer inside the Liberal Korea Party on the threshold of its convention in February.

The friction between the pro-Park Geun Hye faction and non-Parks stands out particularly.

The pro-Park elements plan to form their “centre” by involving even former prime minister Hwang Kyo An while urging former LKP floor leader Jong U Thaek and assemblyman Kim Jin Thae to run for party representative.

Non-Parks are also busy looking for strong candidates as they instigate former Seoul mayor O Se Hun and former South Kyongsang provincial governor Kim Thae Ho, who are popular with centrist conservatives, to take part in competition for party hegemony.

The nominees put forward by LKP factions are all lawbreakers and accomplices like Hwang Kyo An who devoted themselves to corruption and committed acts of treason in league with Park Geun Hye.

The LKP, which is attempting to hold the party hegemony by recommending human scum forsaken by the public, is nothing but a group of villains devoid of elementary human qualifications, far from being politicians.

What it has done so far include corruption, crackdown on progressives and confrontation with the fellow countrymen.

The locals are spitting at the LKP as it only engages in factional strife for party leadership.
