Hon. Chung Ui Hwa, Honorary President of the World Scout Parliamentary Union (WSPU) has been appointed as the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea.
Dr. Chung Ui Hwa joined Scouting in the 1960’s, when he was in middle school. As a Scout, he has always lived according to the Scout principle of “Do a good turn daily”, something that he says has helped him become a parliamentarian and work to serve people.
As a parliamentarian, he became a member of WSPU, which is a global network for parliamentarians who support Scouting. As President of Korea Scout Parliamentary Association (2008-2014), President of WSPU (2010-2013), and now Honorary President of WSPU (since 2013) he has tirelessly continued to support the Movement.
On behalf of WOSM I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Hon. Chung Ui Hwa for his appointment as Speaker of the National Assembly and thank him for his continued efforts for Scouting.
World Scout Parliamentary Union has a consultative status with the World Scout Committee. For more information about WSPU, please see http://scout.org/node/53 or visit their website http://www.wspu.info
