|▲ The comparison of draft Acts in relation to the recent deregulation drive between the ruling Democratic Party and the main opposition Liberty Korea Party on the matters of the regulatory framework(negative or positive), the personal information protection, and the commercialization of medicine with the deregulation of tourism and accommodations.|
There have been growing criticisms when the ruling and the two major opposition parties recently agreed to deal with the deregulation related Acts during the extraordinary session of the National Assembly scheduled in August this year. The controversy centers on the relationship between the five deregulation innovation Acts pursued by the ruling Democratic Party and the deregulation drafts that had been proposed by the former President Park Geun-hye administration.
The progressive minor opposition Justice Party and civic and social organizations denounced that "the regulation innovation Acts of the ruling party share the same roots that the conservative Liberty Korea Party had proposed." They insist that "when the Democratic Party becomes a ruling party from the opposition party (through the presidential election), it conveniently changes its stance that it had been opposing the indiscriminate deregulation drive (by the former conservative administration)." However, the ruling Democratic Party said that "the regulations to be removed in the five regulation innovation Acts are unnecessary regulations within the scope that does not hamper the people's life, safety and environment." "It differs from the deregulation of the former Park Geun-hye administration."
