Candidatos sudcoreanos arrancan la carrera presidencial

February 16, 2022 - Los candidatos presidenciales de Corea del Sur iniciaron formalmente sus campañas el martes en lo que se convertirá en la carrera más reñida en 20 años entre los dos principales partidos, dominados por escándalos que han permitido que un tercer retador tenga un rol potencial para influir en el resultado.

Polls say voters are looking for a president who can clean up polarised politics and corruption, and tackle the runaway housing prices and deepening inequality that have dogged Asia’s fourth-largest economy, according to Reuters.

Curbing North Korea's weapons tests and resuming talks would be a plus, but even a record month of missile testing by Pyongyang in January hasn’t made foreign policy a key issue for the March 9 vote in South Korea.

But the major issues named in the polls have been overshadowed by scandals and petty controversies, ranging from allegations of abuse of power to spats over one candidate’s relationship with a shaman and an anal acupuncturist, Reuters said.
