한나라당은 이들이 국회를 모욕했다고 비난했습니다.
민주당은 한나라당이 추진하는 일부 법안은 '악법'이라면서, 강한 반대 입장을 밝히고 있습니다.
South Korean opposition lawmakers have locked themselves into the main voting hall of parliament in an attempt to prevent the ruling party from passing legislation.
About 50 members of the minority Democratic Party forced their way into the hall Friday and barricaded themselves inside.
Their aim is to prevent a plenary session that might result in the passing of bills the Democratic Party opposes.
South Korean television showed images of police dusting the plenary hall doors for fingerprints while investigating who initiated the takeover.
The ruling Grand National Party criticized the opposition party's actions, saying it shows contempt for the parliamentary process.
The opposition says it strongly opposes several bills that the ruling party wants to pass, labeling the legislation "evil."
