The ruling Minjoo Party on Wednesday nominated former Cheong Wa Dae spokeswoman Ko Min-jung to run for a seat in eastern Seoul's Gwangjin district in the general election on April 15.
That means she will run against former Seoul mayor and conservative United Future Party candidate Oh Se-hoon.
A Minjoo Party lawmaker said Ko "is the right person for the seat because she has assisted President Moon Jae-in and is capable of becoming a spokesperson for the public."
Ko pledged to "put up a good and fair fight." Oh vowed "fiercely" to compete with her.
