Rival political parties have launched a parliamentary special committee on judicial reform.

In the committee’s first plenary session on Monday, the ruling Saenuri and main opposition Democratic United Party (DUP) appointed Saenuri lawmaker Yoo Ki-june to lead the committee.

Saenuri lawmaker Hong Il-pyo and DUP legislator Seo Young-kyo were named the administrator for each party.

The two parties discussed the scope of the agenda to be discussed by the committee, but failed to reach an agreement in light of differences.

The ruling party wants the committee to discuss prosecution reform, such as abolishing the Central Investigations Department of the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office and introducing a year-round independent probe team.

However, the opposition insists the scope of the discussion be limited to the establishment of an anticorruption system and that the prosecution reform be discussed by the parliamentary legislation and judiciary committee.
