April 9th’s election results

I watched the 9 o’clock MBC News tonight on our very old HD incapabale television set — we have

HDMI cables but no set to hook it up too (while preparing several side dishes for my parents-in-law who’ll come to visit us tomorrow and stay with us until my husband comes back from his business trip in India and Saudi Arabia next week – which means I won’t be able to use the computer as much as I’d like to). Of course I was waited for the results of yesterday’s election (I didn’t watch the news last night and was busy the whole day today).

Judith Alegre Fernandez (or is it Hernandez?) didn’t get a seat at the National Assembly. Only two of her party-mates were elected as Proportional Representatives. She’s ranked seventh on the list. Even if she didn’t win, the fact remains that she’s the first foreigner (having no Korean blood) to run for office in South Korea. I hope that alone will open more doors for foreigners 😉

  1. I am sorry to hear that. I imagine she deserved it more than her rank showed, because I am sure many people considered her ethnic background as having some relevance of her ability to work…

    A shame, but she did make history and hopefully opened doors for others to try.
