Korean Democracy in Transition

This chapter discusses the possible answers to two pressing issues: whether a set of institutions could satisfy a number of political actors' various objectives, and how these politicians react in the absence of a set of institutions. It reviews the officially and unofficially stated objectives of the National Conference for New Politics' (NCNP) political reform. It introduces alternative electoral institutions proposed by various political actors, and assesses whether these electoral institutions could achieve the objectives of the NCNP. It finally explains why the governing NCNP stressed the need for the so-called political reorganization in addition to political reform.

Keywords:   objectives, National Conference for New Politics, NCNP, political reform, alternative electoral institutions, political actors, political reorganization
