    SEOUL, JULY 3, REUTER - THE SOUTH KOREAN NATIONAL ASSEMBLY OPENED TODAY, ATTENDED BY BOTH THE RULING AND OPPOSITION PARTIES FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE PASSAGE OF THE CONTROVERSIAL SPECIAL LAW FOR PROTECTION OF NATIONAL SECURITY LAST DECEMBER.

    THE MAJORITY DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN PARTY HAD BOYCOTTED THREE OPPOSITION-CALLED EXTRAORDINARY SESSIONS APPARENTLY TO BLOCK THE MINORITY PARTY'S PARLIAMENTARY MENOEUVRINGS AGAINST PRESIDENT CHUNG-HEE PARK'S PROCLAMATION OF A STATE OF NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND THE PASSAGE OF THE SPACIAL LAW.

    THE 82ND SPECIAL SESSION WHICH OPENED TODAY WAS CONVOKED BY THE TWO RIVALLING PARTIES SEPARATELY BUT FOR THE SAME DATE AFTER NEGOTIATIONS FOR JOINTLY CALLING THE SESSION FAILED.

    THE MINORITY NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY TODAY VOWED TO PRESS THE GOVERNMENT TO REPEAL THE STATE OF EMERGENCY, AS WELL AS THE SPECIAL LAW WHICH APPROVED THE PRESIDENTIAL ACTION POST FACTO.

    HOWEVER, PROSPECT FOR SUBSTANTIVE DEBATES REMAINED UNCERTAIN AS A FLOOR LEADERS MEETING WHICH FOLLOWED THE OPENING SESSION FAILED TO REACH AN ACCORD ON THE AGENDA.
