The National Assembly standing committee passed next year's 201-billion-won budget for the construction of the Jeju naval base on Wednesday, Nov. 28 with only representatives from the ruling Saenuri Party present. The budget bill was then forwarded to the Special Committee on Budget and Accounts, the parliamentary subcommittee for calculation adjustment, but the review was delayed on Nov. 29.

Representatives from the opposition Democratic United Party were absent from the Wednesday morning meeting of the National Defense Committee. The DUP lawmakers were reportedly not even present in the meeting room for the budget discussions.

According to the budget bill for the coming year, 108.3 billion won of the funding plan is allocated to produce caissons for work on zone one of the installation and foundation work for a breakwater. 48.5 billion won is earmarked for caissons and foundation work for a pier in zone 2, and the final 21.9 billion won will be for land-based construction.

Jang Ha Na, lawmaker from DUP, said in an interview with online news site Sisa Jeju that at a time when the naval base construction is an extremely sensitive political issue, chief secretaries of both the ruling and opposition parties have agreed to postpone the passing of the budget bill for next year until after the election.

In response to the passage of the budget bill by only the ruling party members, DUP lawmakers declared the process to be invalid and some peace activists, including Fr. Mun Jeong-hyun and Kang Dong Kyun, Gangjeong village leader, emphatically protested the bill’s passage by shaving their heads on Nov. 29 in front of the National Assembly in Seoul.
