Overseas voter registrations for the April General Elections next year… Korea’s first electoral procedure allowing overseas suffrage… start this Sunday.
And 130 chairpersons of overseas election commissions in 91 countries gathered in Seoul on Monday for a two-day election management training program.
These chairpersons assumed their posts in mid-October when the overseas election commissions set up in 158 Korean diplomatic missions started operating.
In a speech to the chairpersons from all over the world, Chairperson Kim Nung-hwan of the National Election Commission, urged them to follow the rules while on the job.
[Interview : Kim Nung-hwan, Chairperson
Korea National Election Commission] “Your political neutrality and transparency on the job is vital for the success of overseas election management. All election management procedures must be strictly followed by how the law stipulates.”
Most of the chairpersons are civilians with various occupations… representing Korean communities abroad.
And they expressed their heavy sense of responsibility for overseeing the voting procedures for both the General and the Presidential Elections next year.
[Interview : Kwon Se-jin, Chairperson
Overseas Election Commission in Wuhan, China] “The overseas elections next year will serve as a venue for Koreans abroad to participate in national politics and voice their opinions.

[Interview : Ham Mi-yeon, Chairperson
Overseas Election Commission in France] “Many overseas Koreans in France are highly interested in Korean politics and are excited about these first overseas elections. I will do my best monitoring these important elections, keeping my neutrality intact.”
In addition to learning about the legal and administrative guidelines required on the job, the chairpersons were introduced to the ballot issuing machines… implemented for the first time specifically for overseas voting.
They practiced using the machines… which automatically produce ballot papers… when a registered voter punches in his or her finger print.
