    The presidential office has made no progress in finding a name for itself after it moved out of the old presidential palace of Cheong Wa Dae.
    "A decision was made not to recommend a new name for the presidential office for now," presidential spokeswoman Kang In-sun said Tuesday. "Rather than choosing one hastily among those suggested, we decided to take more time until a suitable name emerges."

    From some 30,000 entries suggested by the public, five were picked for consideration including "People's House" and the address "Itaewon-ro 22," in emulation of 10 Downing Street, but none won a majority vote.
