On April 15, South Korea will be one of the first nations to conduct an election since the World Health Organization declared the spread of COVID-19 as a global pandemic. When voters head to the polls during this crisis they will cast votes for all 300 seats in the National Assembly and have more choices than ever thanks to changes in how proportional voting seats are distributed. The elections will also serve as an opportunity for votes to give an assessment of the Moon administration’s first half and serve as an opportunity for voters express their preferences for the future direction of policy.

Please join KEI for a livestream discussion of the implications of South Korea’s National Assembly election for South Korean policy during the remainder of the Moon administration and how South Korea worked to protect its elections during a time of global pandemic.

This event will be livestreamed on Zoom with an interactive Q&A session. To ask a question of the speakers please use the Zoom Q&A function.
