South Korea presidential election
18 | May | 2017

Moon Jae-in, a former human rights layer and the candidate of the Democratic Party is the new president of South Korea. The anticipated election of May 9th  was a consequence of Park Geun-hye impeachment. The new president has two major internal tasks ahead: to improve the economy and to reduce youth unemployment. However, this election became more important internationally due to his rapprochement policy with North Korea.
