South Korea's ruling party wins parliamentary polls

Seoul, Thu, 12 Apr 2012 ANI

Seoul, Apr 12 (ANI): South Korea's ruling Saenuri party has won a majority of seats in the parliamentary elections.

Saenuri (New Frontier Party) won 152 in the 300-seat national assembly, which was 25 more than the opposition Democratic United Party (DUP) that had earlier been tipped to win the election.

The vote is being seen as a key test for the leader ahead of presidential elections in December, The BBC reports.

According to election officials, turnout was 54.3 percent compared to 46.1 percent four years ago.

In a statement, President Lee Myung-bak said people had made 'wise choices'.

According to the report, a win for the pro-business ruling party will come as a boost for its leader and presumed presidential candidate Park Geun-hye.

This is the first time in 20 years that the country's parliamentary and presidential elections have fallen in the same year. (ANI)
