ABSTRACT

The Korean Assembly delegates authority to the governmental administration to regulate the most important components of social security programs. The excessive delegation is a rational choice on the side of Korean presentatives whose ultimate goal is to be nominated again and elected at the next general election. As Korean political parties adopt top-down methods to nominate a candidate and loyalty to the party leader is the pre-eminent criterion of candidate selection, representatives are not concerned about regulating the Social Security Acts in detail. In addition, the members of the standing committees of the Assembly must be reorganized every two years and their members often change committee. As a result, representatives delegate authority to the administration to regulate the aforementioned important components of social security programs. It leads to fail to develop social security programs.
