2002 Presidential Election (Part V)

In the elections, the conservative Grand National Party (GNP) won a landslide victory by winning 11 of the 16 provincial governors and mayors. The ruling Millennium Democratic Party (MDP) suffered a devastating defeat, winning only four seats, with the remaining one going to an independent party. The successive defeats prompted the MDP to get into an extreme internal dissension.

Roh Moo-hyun of the ruling MDP won the presidential election held December 19, 2002, defeating Lee Hoi-chang (李會昌, bio Wiki) of the main opposition GNP.
