🔴Wednesday April 7th 2021 🔵2021年4月7日星期三 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 📥🇰🇷📤Elections in South Korea: cities of disillusion 南韓大選:展顏消宿怨,一笑泯恩仇 South Koreans go to the polls today to elect new mayors for Seoul and Busan, the country’s biggest cities. The previous mayors, both members of the governing Minjoo party, were accused of sexual harassment by female employees. The former mayor of Busan stepped down and is awaiting trial; the former mayor of Seoul committed suicide. The by-elections are widely seen as a referendum on Moon Jae-in, the president, in the final year of his term. It looks unlikely to be favourable. Mr Moon’s approval rating is the lowest since he took office; opposition candidates lead both races by wide margins. That reflects the usual fatigue that colours the end of a government’s tenure. But a scandal over profitable land deals involving employees of the state housing agency hasn’t helped. Nor has the fall of the two mayors. The opposition, though expected to win, isn’t terribly popular; its main selling-point is the contrast with Mr Moon and Minjoo. 南韓民眾今日將投票選出首爾以及釜山兩大城的新市長。而皆隸屬 (當今執政的) 南韓民主黨的兩位前市長不約而同地被其女僱員指控性騷擾。前釜山市長因此而下台並候審、前首爾市長則以自殺了結。這場市長補選被普遍視為對南韓 (現任) 總統文在寅最後一年任期的公投。不過形勢看起來不太妙。目前文在寅的支持度跌到上任以來的新低,而首、釜雙城的兩位在野黨候選人亦紛紛在選戰民調中取得大幅領先。不過這也反映出選民通常會對執政者,尤其是在其最後任期的日子裡,感到疲乏。然而,在野黨陣營並沒有從 (政府負責國宅興建的) 土地住宅公社官員涉嫌炒地醜聞或從兩位前市長的殞落中得利。縱使他們有望勝出,但並不是因為他們受到萬民擁戴,而只是因為他們打著不同於文在寅以及 (南韓) 民主黨這樣的賣點罷了。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Elect (v.): 推選、選出 (動) ✅Sexual harassment (n.): 性騷擾 (名) ✅Commit suicide (v.): 自殺 (動) ✅Favourable (adj.): 有利的 (形) ✅Candidate (n.): 候選人 (名) ✅Fatigue (n.): 疲勞、疲倦 (名) ✅Scandal (n.): 醜聞 (名) ✅The contrast with (phr.): 與…之形成對比 (片) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
