SEOUL Washington Redskins Kirk Cousins Jersey , May 10 (Xinhua) — South Korea has taken off a new start as Moon Jae-in of the biggest Minjoo Party was elected the country’s new president on Wednesday following the impeachment of his predecessor driven by people power.
In the process of the citizen-led ouster, ordinary people shouted equality and justice every Saturday night for months since October on the streets with candles in their hands.
The people’s activity boosted a political awareness among the general public, ranging from high school students, office workers and housewives to gray-haired old men who participated in the candlelit rallies.
The Moon administration is expected to be powered by ordinary people who are awakened to the significance for their participation in politics.
Despite a mountain of challenges facing the new South Korean leader, the politically-awakened supporters would help Moon continue to push for his reform on the overall society.
“Political patience among the general public increased. It is a positive side of the influence-peddling scandal (and the subsequent candlelight demonstrations,)” said Seo Bok Kyung Washington Redskins Josh Norman Jersey , a researcher at Sogang University’s Institute of Political Studies.
Seo said people came to learn that just the change of a president was not able to reform their country and solve all the problems prevailing every hole and corner.
Paradoxically speaking, the researcher said, expectations were lowered for Moon to be able to reform the country in a drastic way over the short run.
