From my Korean contacts, I sense a new political optimism in the form of breaking the democratic tyranny of the two-party duopoly system.
I have been busy and have no time to do any further in-depth commentary, as I'd like to, and as I will get back to.
300 seats allocated (majority: 151+)
122 seats: Saenuri Party [right-wing, so-called, governing] (새누리당)
123 seats: Democratic Party [left-wing, so-called; it and its predecessors have been in opposition for almost all of the history of the Republic of Korea since independence in 1948, both during the military rule period and during the past twenty-five years of quasi-democracy] (I have learned they want to be called "the Minjoo Party of Korea" in English). (더불어민주당).
38 seats: People's Party [centrist, so-called, but most seats are due to Jeolla region voters punishing their long standy party]. Party leader, Dr. Ahn Cheol-Soo, also easily won re-election.
6 seats: Justice Party [left-wing] (정의당)
11 seats: Independents. Many of these are expelled members of the Saenuri Party.
The big winner, alas, was Ahn Cheol-Soo. He's got to be a favorite for the presidency now.
