1項調查週日指出,南韓民眾中,10人就有逾7人支持修憲,多數支持者所舉的理由是,有必要使這部數十年歷史的根本大法切合現今社會的變遷。

Regarding the government structure, some 46 percent preferred power sharing between the president and the prime minister while some 38 percent backed the current presidential system. The survey, conducted by Hankook Research commissioned by the National Assembly Speaker’s Office, asked 1,000 adults nationwide and found that 75.4 percent of them favored a constitutional revision, while 14.5 percent of respondents objected the idea.

關於政府架構的部分,約46%的受訪者偏好總統與國務總理間共享權力,同時有約38%支持目前的總統制。該調查為國會議長辦公室委託(南韓市調公司)「韓國研究」所做,詢問全國千名成人,發現其中75.4%贊成修憲,同時有14.5%的受訪者反對此想法。

Among those who opposed the revision, 44.8 percent pointed out that problems regarding the Constitution are related with use of the basic law, not the Constitution itself. The survey showed 72 percent of South Koreans want "equal pay for equal work" written in the Constitution.

反對修憲的人裡有44.8%指出,關於憲法的問題與該根本大法的運用有關,而非出於憲法本身。該調查並顯示,72%的南韓國民想把「同工同酬」寫入憲法。
