Talks Between Ahn and Moon Breakdown Over Who Will Be Liberal Candidate

It looks like there is a lot of trouble between the two South Korean liberal Presidential candidates as talks between Ahn Cheol-soo and Moon Jae-in have broke down due to squabbling:

Liberal presidential candidates and their campaign staff squared off Thursday over how to resume negotiations to pick a single candidate to compete against the ruling conservative hopeful in the December election.

Independent candidate Ahn Cheol-soo, who suspended ongoing talks the day before and accused the main opposition Democratic United Party (DUP) of trying to manipulate the selection process by spreading unfounded rumors, expressed deep disappointment over recent developments.

In a meeting with reporters, the entrepreneur-turned-politician warned that if there is no change, the liberal camp will not be able to win the presidential race this year.

“The process of reaching understanding on the single candidacy issue is much more important than the results,” he said.  [Yonhap]

You can read the rest at the link, but the conservative candidate Park Geun-hye must just love this squabbling because it is only going to help her the longer there is not a unified liberal candidate.

    Ahn is right. But Moon’s goons will only turn up in wheelchairs and ask for a presidential candidate’s pardon.
