President Yoon Suk-yeol said, “Prime Minister Winston Churchill of the United Kingdom and Chairman Clement Attlee of the opposition Labor Party were good examples of win-win cooperation in time of emergency and difficulties of a nation.”
Speaking at the National Assembly in Seoul on May 16, 2022, President Yoon stressed the importance of parliamentarism and declared, “True free democracy comes from proper management of parliamentary democracy.”

During World War II, Conservative Party Prime Minister Winston Churchill broke through the difficulties with a coalition government with the opposition party, appointing Labor Party Chairman Attlee, who had been his competitor during World War II as a cabinet member.
President Yoon needs the cooperation of the opposition party for the passage of the supplementary budget bills and for the proper management of the affairs of the state in the extremely difficult situation in Korea today.

President Yoon Seok-yul (third from left, foreground) highly praised Prime Minister Winston Churchill of the United Kingdom and the then opposition party leader Clement Atlee for their successful win-win cooperation to cope with the national difficulties at the time.

President Yoon said, “I think the supplementary budget bill is meaningful as a first step in resolving the challenges ahead of us according to the principle of parliamentarism. We have a proud history of overcoming difficulties through transcending the differences between the parties.”
At the end of his speech on the municipal administration, President Yoon said, "I hope that today's event will be recorded as a proud page in our brilliant parliamentary history."
