'Call us Park Geun-hye Government'

By Jun Ji-hye

The incoming government wants to be known as, "The Park Geun-hye Government," the presidential transition team said Wednesday.

Spokesman Yoon Chang-jung said, "The name was decided on with the simple purpose of promoting President-elect Park's political vision and philosophy."

Two other slogans considered were "The People's Livelihood Government" and "The Happiness Government."

Park's predecessors named their governments after their core values.

The late President Roh Moo-hyun used the term, "Participatory Government," while the late Kim Dae-jung referred to his administration as "The People's Government."

The incumbent, President Lee Myung-bak, named his administration "The Lee Myung-bak Government."

Yoon said experts were consulted about the slogan and the subject was discussed many times at meetings.

'박근혜 정부’라 불러주세요

차기 정부 명칭이 ‘박근혜 정부’로 결정됐다.

윤창중 대통령직 인수위원회 대변인은 6일 삼청동 인수위 기자회견장에 열린 브리핑에서 “그간 인수위 국정기획조정분과 주관으로 외부 전문가로부터 명칭에 관한 의견 수렴 절차를 진행하고 간사회의를 거친 끝에 박근혜 정부로 명칭을 공식 결정했다”고 밝혔다.

그는 “박 당선인이 추구하는 국정 철학과 핵심 가치 등은 국정 비전에 담기로 했다”면서 박근혜 정부 외에 ‘민생정부’, ‘국민행복정부’ 등도 거론됐다고 밝혔다.

이전 대통령들은 자신이 추구하는 핵심가치를 반영할 수 있는 정부 명칭을 사용해왔다.

김대중 대통령은 ‘국민의 정부’로, 노무현 대통령은 ‘참여 정부’로 결정한 바 있다.
