Pres. Yoon Appoints Yoon Hee-keun as New Police Chief Updated: 2022-08-10 17:20:24 KST

President Yoon Suk-yeol went ahead with the appointment of Yoon Hee-keun, deputy commissioner general of the National Police Agency, as his new police chief without a parliamentary confirmation hearing report.
The president presented Yoon with a letter of certificate on Wednesday making him the eleventh high-ranking official in this administration to be installed without parliamentary approval.
On Monday, the parliament's Public Administration and Security Committee failed to adopt the report during Yoon's confirmation hearing as the rival parties were unsuccessful in narrowing their differences.
Seoul's top office said the South Korean leader decided to push ahead with the appointment as he thought he couldn't leave the security vacuum prolonged.
