South Korea Begins Presidential Election Campaign.

Campaigning for South Korea’s Presidential election has began, in what is expected to be the tightest race in twenty years.

The ruling Democratic Party’s Lee Jae-myung began his campaign with a visit to a shipping control tower in the southeastern port city of Busan.

The conservative People Power Party’s Yoon Suk-yeol, Lee’s main rival, started his bid for office at the Seoul National Cemetery.

Opinion polls suggest voters are looking for a President who can address polarized politics and tackle corruption, as well as deal with soaring housing prices and deepening inequality.
