Newspapers on Results of "Local Elections"

Pyongyang, June 5 (KCNA) -- It was a due outcome that the democratic forces in south Korea won a landslide victory in the "elections to local self-governing bodies" and the "Grand National Party" suffered a heavy defeat, observe leading newspapers Saturday in their commentaries.

This represents a victory of the forces for independence, democracy and reunification over the pro-U.S. conservative group and a resolute judgment of the people's mindset, Rodong Sinmun says, and goes on:

Through the "elections" the south Korean people declared a total bankruptcy of the sycophantic and treacherous, fascist and anti-reunification domestic and foreign policies pursued by the Lee Myung Bak group.

The anti-"government" struggle which was triggered off by the mass candlelight demonstrations against the import of American beef resumed by the "regime under the cloak of pragmatism" proved to be a stern judgment meted out to the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors through the "elections to local self-governing bodies".

The results of the said "elections" prove that unshakable is the will of the south Korean people to put an end to the treacherous policies ignoring the people's mindset and bring down the hateful "regime veiled with the word of pragmatism" at any cost.

The conservative group was thrown into such crisis and uneasiness before the "elections" that it kicked up confrontation and war hysteria after linking the case of the warship sinking with the DPRK at any cost in a bid to divert elsewhere the public attention and win the "elections." It, however, could not blindfold the people and stop their ears. By inflicting a bitter defeat on the group of traitors in the "elections", the south Korean people dealt sledgehammer blows at the puppet authorities hell-bent on the moves to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK after orchestrating the warship case.

Minju Joson says it is the mindset of the south Korean people that the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors should step down without delay as it has done only bad things.
