Saenuri Chief Calls for Meeting between President and Party Chiefs

Ruling Saenuri Party Chairman Lee Jung-hyun expressed hope Tuesday that President Park Geun-hye and chiefs of rival parties will meet as soon as possible to form a neutral Cabinet proposed by the opposition camp.

Lee says he thinks main opposition Democratic Party Chairwoman Choo Mi-ae has a will to break through the national crisis and the political chaos.

However, he expressed displeasure over the opposition parties' reported refusal to recognize him as a partner for talks.

Lee reiterated his position that he can't step down during a meeting with chiefs of district party chapters.
