Opposition mounts against education minister

Opposition lawmakers in South Korea stepped up their offensive last week against Education Minister-designate Kim Myung-soo, and further accused him of misconduct during his teaching years, reports The Korea Herald.

“Kim was found to have cheated while writing all four articles that he submitted for promotion in the university,” said Representative Yoo Eun-hae of the New Politics Alliance for Democracy. “Far from being appointed a minister, we cannot help but question whether he was qualified to be a professor.”

The former professor of Korea National University of Education has already been accused of plagiarising a thesis by his student and colleagues to write papers that helped him get promotion. The opposition has made it clear that they will object to Kim’s appointment in light of the misconduct that has been revealed.
