At a plenary session, the National Assembly voted for Choe Jae-hyeong, tapped as the head of the Board of Audit and Inspection, Ahn Chul-sang and Min You-sook picked as Supreme Court justices.

The vote was put off for more than a week due to the parliamentary deadlock over a constitutional revision.
