South Korea

Local elections were held in South Korea on 27 June 1995. It was the first election of municipal and provincial officials since the May 16 coup of 1961.[1]


President Kim Young-sam's Democratic Liberal Party (DLP) won only five of the top fifteen posts. The main opposition, the centre-left Democratic Party, took control of Seoul by winning the mayoral office and 23 of the city’s 25 wards. The newly founded right-wing United Liberal Democrats, formed after Kim Jong-pil quit as leader of the DLP, won three governorships.[1]
