Ruling bloc clinches overwhelming victory, giving boost to Moon

The ruling bloc achieved a sweeping victory in the general election, Wednesday, winning nearly three-fifths of the 300 National Assembly seats. The landslide win has made the Democratic Party of Korea (DPK) and its satellite offshoot Civil Together an unprecedented political presence that can «pass any bills» without the cooperation of other parties – except for constitutional revisions that require a two-thirds majority – a huge boost for the Moon Jae-in administration. According to the National Election Commission, Thursday, the DPK won 163 out of 253 constituencies while its affiliate was given 17 proportional representation seats.
