- This paper intends to provide a thorough empirical analysis of the character of the electoral system for the Korean National Assembly. Especially, it is going to illuminate both the form and consequence of the electoral system from a comparative perspective. The study will explicate not only the extent to which the system ensures significant political forces fair representation, but it will also discuss the ways in which the system has affected the existing pattern of Korean representational politics since the country's transition from authoritarianism. In this paper, the author will go further to put forward a proposal for electoral reform which can contribute to enhancing Korean democracy. This section is devoted to describing the rules for electing the Korean National Assembly. In order to set the context for the analysis, this description is accompanied by an overview of developments in electoral politics since the dawn of the current democratic era.
