PM Kim Rules Out Cabinet Reshuffle


Yonhap runs comments from Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum, who has ruled out a Cabinet rejig in the final months of the current administration.

  • Prime Minister Kim also brushed away speculation that he could replace Lee Jae-myung as the ruling Democratic Party's presidential nominee, noting that it would be an "insult" to the people.
