Notable members

2007 Election

They held their nominating convention for 2007 presidential election on November 4, 2007. During that event, its leader Moon Kook-hyun was elected with 8,884(94.9%) of the mobile phone vote.[2] As one of the pro-governmental liberal candidates, he and his party suffered the pressure of political simplification from several civil organizational leaders for the entire campaigning period. However, although negotiating with the UNDP politicians a lot, he eventually decided to target voters disappointed with both major parties (the UNDP and GNP) and their candidates(Chung Dong-young and Lee Myung-bak). They hoped to reach somewhat over 10% support, but gained a final result of 1.38 million voters(5.82%) which put them in 4th place. However, they earned more votes than the 10-year-old KDLP's result(3.00%), and gained strong supports (Its average was roughly 8%) from metropolitan city areas, such as Seoul and its suburbs, Incheon, Daejeon, Chuncheon, Jeju[3], therefore it was judged to be a potential threat to major parties during the 2008 parliamentary election.[4]
