Kim Young Sam, president of South Korea's leading opposition party, announced his resignation to help unify opposition political forces for upcoming parliamentary elections. "United, we will survive; otherwise we will die," said Kim, who finished second to governing party candidate Roh Tae Woo in presidential elections in December. Kim said that he will remain a member of the Reunification Democratic Party but that picking a new leader will be "up to the party. I am no longer in a position to meddle."
