Lee Ki-heung (68), chairman of the Korea Sports Council, who has been in conflict with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the ministry in charge regarding sports policy, will begin the establishment of the National Sports Committee as a government organization starting with the athlete competition held on the 16th. He announced that he would get started.Chairman Lee said in an interview with Yonhap News held on the 2nd in the sports president’s office at the Olympic Hall in Bangi-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul, “We (the Korean Sports Council and the sports community) do not participate in the recently launched National Sports Policy Committee (hereinafter referred to as the Policy Committee).” “We will begin efforts to create the National Sports Committee, a new sports policy control tower, on the 16th,” he emphasized.He continued, “Starting on February 15th, I toured the country for a month and met with city/municipal sports associations, city/county/district sports associations, presidents of each sport, school sports/lifestyle sports leaders, national team leaders, etc., explained the justification for establishing a national sports committee, and launched a signature campaign on March 20th. “With 50,000 athletes gathered at the square in front of the National Assembly, I will ask the National Assembly members to create a bill to establish a National Sports Committee,” he added. Chairman Lee also said that he had requested a meeting with President Yoon Seok-yeol in writing with members of the Sports Council’s Senior Council and is currently awaiting a response.
The National Sports Committee, which Chairman Lee and the sports community hope for, is a consensus-based body within a government organization with independence, like the current Korea Communications Commission and the Financial Services Commission, and oversees overall sports policy.In contrast, the Policy Committee, launched on the 20th of last month, is a public-private joint organization under the Prime Minister.Article 9 of the Basic Sports Act enacted in August 2021 ‘Deliberation and resolution on matters related to guaranteeing citizens’ sports rights, evaluation and inspection of major policies, establishment and adjustment of basic plans, and establishment and adjustment of major policies related to hosting international competitions. It was launched in accordance with the provisions of ‘Establishing a National Sports Policy Committee under the Prime Minister to comprehensively coordinate sports-related policies.’It was then reorganized into a 카지노사이트킹 public-private joint committee based on the revised enforcement ordinance in January of last year.
