Parties Register for Crucial July 30 By-Elections

Political parties are getting ready to register their candidates on Thursday and Friday for parliamentary by-elections on July 30.

Candidates for all 15 constituencies had been nominated by both the ruling and opposition parties by Wednesday.

The July 30 by-elections are the biggest ever with the greatest number of vacant seats nationwide.

Experts see them as a barometer of voter sentiment after the April 16 ferry disaster and the government's recent series of nomination debacles. / Jul. 10, 2014 13:21 KST
