Prime minister nominee blasts new administrative city as 'inefficient'

SEOUL, Sept. 21 (Yonhap) -- Prime Minister nominee Chung Un-chan said Monday that a government plan to relocate nine ministries and four major administration bodies to the newly created Sejong City in central South Korea would lead to nationwide inefficiency.

Triggering fresh debate on the politically sensitive Sejong City project, Chung, formerly an economics professor at Seoul National University (SNU), said that the government will have to seek alternative plans for the new town envisioned as a new administrative capital.
