Exit polls predict S. Korean ruling party losing majority

Exit polls from S Korea'south parliamentary election indicate that President Park Geun-hye'south conservative party won't regain its majority in the 300-seat National Assembly.

Such an outcome in Wednesday'south elections would jeopardize Park'south plans to thrust ahead with controversial economic reforms, and would blow open following year'south presidential race.

Pollsters had predicted the ruling Saenuri Party to crush a divided opposition for a decisive win and lift its expectations to get the presidency in two thousand-seventeenth, after Park'south single term expires.

Exit polls by three national television networks unveiled after voting ended at sixth p. m. showed Saenuri managing 118-147 seats. The networks projected the main opposition Minjoo Party winning 97-128 seats, and the People'south Party, a new party created mostly by those who defected from Minjoo, taking 31-43 seats.
