Prime Minister Kim Hwang-sik called on government agencies to come up with electricity supply measures ahead of the winter season.

Kim said during a national policy-setting meeting at the central government complex in Seoul on Friday that low temperatures are expected during the coming winter, and he urged government agencies to come up with various measures to manage electricity demand.

The prime minister said that the recent shutdown of nuclear power plants operations due to their components used under fabricated warranties is expected to result in a mismatch in supply and demand. The Prime Minister said necessary measures should be put in place to resolve the anxiety of South Korean citizens and secure sufficient supply.

Kim also ordered the Education Ministry to cooperate with relevant agencies to maintain a fair college entrance system, stressing that an improved system is required for foreign students and students in agricultural regions.
