He presented nomination certificates to his Foreign Minister II Hyung Chung, Home Minister Ik Pyon Hong and to all the other members of his cabinet.

Dr. Chiang Myun, Foreign Affairs..Mr. II Hyung Chung, Defence..Mr. Suk Ho Hyun, Home Affairs..Mr. II Pyon Hong, Finance....Mr. Yung Sun Kim, Justice..Mr. Jai Chun Cho, Education..Mr. Chung Suk Oh, Transportation...Mr. Hun Ju Chung, Reconstruction..Mr. Yo Han Chu, Agriculture and Forestry..Mr. Jai Ha Park, Commerce and Industry..Mr. Tai Yung Lee, Health and Social Affairs.. Mr. Jyun Don Shin, Communications..Mr. Sang Chul Lee, Chief Cabinet Secretary.. Mr. Wi Yung Oh, Minister without Portfolio..Mr. Suntai Kim.
