    AT A JOINT CONVENTION IN SEOUL, KOREA, YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) THREE OF THE LEADING OPPOSITION PARTIES - THE FEDERAL RULE PARTY, THE NEW POLITICAL PARTY AND THE MINWOO (POPULAR PARTNERS) PARTY - MERGED INTO THE PARTY OF THE PEOPLE.

    THIS MOVE WAS TAKEN TO POOL THEIR STRENGTH AGAINST ACTING PRESIDENT AND SOUTH KOREAN JUNTA LEADER, GENERAL JUNG HUI PARK, WHO IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENCY AS DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN THE ELECTIONS DUE TO TAKE PLACE ON OCTOBER 15.

    THE CONVENTION RAN INTO DIFFICULTIES WHEN THE QUESTION OF NOMINATING A CANDIDATE AROSE ON THE AGENDA.IT WAS PLANNED TO CHOOSE A CANDIDATE WITHOUT VOTING AS THE PARTY SPONSORS FELT THAT VOTING WOULD WEAKEN THE COALITION.

    HOWEVER THE CONVENTION WAS UNABLE TO DECIDE ON A CANDIDATE, AND THE FIRST DAY'S MEETING ENDED IN UPROAR.THE NOMINATION OF THE CANDIDATE WAS POSTPONED UNTIL THE NEXT DAY.

    AMONG THE LEADERS OF THE NEW PARTY ARE BYUNG-NO KIM, COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN, AND POSUN YUN, FORMER PRESIDENT AND LEADER OF THE FEDERAL RULE PARTY.
