Korea′s rival political parties have agreed
to pass several pending bills at the extra parliamentary plenary session set to open
on Tuesday. Floor leader of the ruling Saenuri party Yoo
Seung-min and his opposition party counterpart Lee Jong-kul met Sunday and reached an agreement
on dealing with a package of bills awaiting their approval,…. including a revised
income tax bill aimed at allowing taxpayers to receive tax rebates owed to them by the
end of the month. They also agreed to pass a local finance bill
on childcare funding at Tuesday′s session. However, the two parties remain at odds
over the long-stalled bill on civil servants′ pension reform.
They′ve vowed to continue discussions on the issue during the May extra session which
starts from Monday.
