As the recession has accelerated due to the sluggish domestic economy and shrinking consumer sentiment recently, the political confusion has intensified, causing confusion and anxiety among the citizens. In particular, the consumer sentiment index for November, 2015 recorded the lowest level since the global financial crisis (April, 2009). The economic growth rate of 2017 is expected to reach 2%, and the difficulties of citizens are likely to continue.
