This week has been a great week in international sphere, first Mr. Emmanuel Macron is elected at the President of France and defeating Marine Le Pen, the far right candidate who shares the same idealogies as President Donald Trump. And now South Korea elected a liberal, Mr. Moon-Jae In as the president of South Korea.
Mr. Moon is a liberal leader, believes in freedom and equality for all and in re-allocation of income throughout the country. He is anti-corruption and more importantly he likes to promote peace between South and North Korea.
Given the current environment and rise of hostility between North Korea and the United States, cooling heads such as President Elect Moon is much appreciated and needed. President Elect Moon has vowed to immediately pursue and promote peace between the two countries and reduce the tension in the Korean Penninsula.
Election of Mr. Moon ends decades of conservative leadership in Soul and brings a new era for the South Korean. The recent corruption turmoil and eventual impeachment and jailing of the former present caused much anxiety for the South Korean.
