Confirmation hearing for prime minister-designate due on Aug. 24-25
By Shim Sun-ah
SEOUL, Aug. 9 (Yonhap) -- Rival parties agreed Monday to hold a confirmation hearing for the prime minister-designate for two days from Aug. 24.

Deputy floor leaders of the ruling Grand National Party (GNP) and the main opposition Democratic Party said they also decided to hold confirmation hearings for eight other nominees for Cabinet minister posts and the chief of the National Tax Service for a week from Aug. 16.
Kim Tae-ho, the 47-year-old former governor of South Gyeongsang Province, was nominated as prime minister by President Lee Myung-bak in a reshuffle Sunday that also replaced seven ministers, two minister-level officials and two vice minister-level officials.
