President-elect Park Geun-hye will make her second key-personnel announcement on Wednesday, the presidential transition committee said.
“The announcement of the key-personnel selection for the Park Geun-hye administration will be made at 11 a.m. tomorrow. No more details can be revealed at present,” Park’s chief spokesman Yoon Chang-joong said at a press briefing on Tuesday.
While the transition team spokesman declined to elaborate, it is widely expected that Park’s choice of personnel for the presidential secretariat, including its chief, and ministerial nominations will be revealed in the announcement.
Under Park’s administration, the presidential office will become a presidential secretariat, whose chief will also chair the committee on high-level government appointments.
In the first announcement, made on Jan. 8, the presidential transition committee said that former prosecutor Chung Hong-won was nominated for the prime minister’s post, and former Minister of National Defense Kim Jang-soo as the chief of Cheong Wa Dae’s national security office.
