Parliament rejects nominee for SMEs minister

Seats for ruling party members of the parliamentary industry committee are empty after they walk out during a discussion on whether to approve Park Seong-jin as the minister of small and medium-sized enterprises and startups. The committee rejected Park's nomination, concluding in its report after the confirmation hearing that he is unfit for the job. The ruling Democratic Party had not actively defended Park, who became controversial for his views on history and religion as well as allegations of unethical conduct. (Yonhap) (END)
