THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE?
Among the other campaign promises made and issues raised by GNP leader Park Geun-hye is this interesting blast from the past:
GNP chairwoman Park Geun-hye created stir when she expressed support for the introduction of a new system for allowing current president to extend his stay in office for another tenure.In the later years of his regime, Park's father, Park Chung Hee, took steps to insure that he could be president for life. Little did he know how well his aims would be realized.
"I have long backed such system although I need to consult the party over whether to make it our official campaign pledge or not," she said in an interview.
