The leadership of the United Progressive Party rejected the final appeal of Lee Seok-Gi and Kim Jae-Yeon, two UPP Assembly members who were allegedly (but almost certainly) involved in rigging UPP’s primary votes to select the party’s proportional representative slate. The appeals of two other party members on the slate (who were not elected) were also denied. This means that after a final vote among the UPP Assembly members, the four UPP members will be expelled from the party.
