Koreans Abroad to Vote in Primary: The Korea Times

Koreans Abroad to Vote in Primary:

Absentee voters living abroad will be allowed to participate in the selection of the presidential candidate of the governing Grand National Party (GNP), senior party officials said Monday.

'In accordance with the passage of a bill that grants suffrage to Korean nationals residing overseas, the GNP decided Sunday to include them in the electoral roll of the party's presidential primary,' Rep. Jeong Tae-keun of the GNP said.


The main opposition Democratic Party (DP) will decide whether to permit overseas Koreans to cast votes in the presidential primary prior to its convention slated for July next year, according to a party official.
