    Thank you for the news. The result of 18th South Korea’s presidential election should be nullified because the NIS and Seoul Police meddled in the election. They violated the election law

    If the NIS interfered in the presidential election, that’s not real election. The NIS swayed public opinion, and that’s grave election crime.

    We don’t trust the prosecution’s conclusion. They didn’t arrest anyone from NIS and Seoul Police even though suspects destroyed the evidences. In addition, prosecution didn’t indict several NIS officials, who meddled in the domestic politics and elections. It absolutely doesn’t make sense.

    Park is not S. Korean President. She has to resign for Justice & Democracy of S. Korea.
