Gov’t, Saenuri Discuss Summer Power Outage Prevention

The government and ruling party have discussed measures to ensure the stable supply of electricity this summer, following the operational suspension of nuclear reactors built with substandard parts.

In a government-party meeting on Wednesday, Vice Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Han Jin-hyun said that his ministry will devise measures to ease public concerns. He promised to punish officials involved in the use of poor-quality parts that led to the shutdowns and keep it from happening again.

The vice minister pledged to employ all possible measures to maintain a stable power supply in the face of a likely shortage.

Ruling party lawmakers lamented the situation, criticizing the government for failing to properly supervise and inspect the operation of nuclear reactors.

The Saenuri Party’s chief policy-maker Kim Ki-hyun said that the public sector should do its best in dealing with the situation and seek the people's understanding in the process.

Rep. Yeo Sang-kyu, a member of the parliamentary committee on trade, industry and energy, stressed the need to devise energy-saving measures and asked industries to fully use their own power generating facilities.
