Last Poll Before Presidential Election in South Korea Shows Tightened Race

Election's on the 19th


With the election just six days away, South Korea's leading presidential candidates Thursday put in their last bids to drum up support across the nation as the final polling results indicated an increasingly tight race.

Most public opinion surveys showed ruling Saenuri Party candidate Park Geun-hye maintaining a slight lead over Moon Jae-in of the main opposition Democratic United Party (DUP), although the gap usually fell within the margin of error.
