Six in 10 Koreans oppose former President Chun’s burial at National Cemetery: poll

SEOUL, More than six out of 10 South Koreans are opposed to the burial of former President Chun Doo-hwan at the National Cemetery after his death, a poll released Monday showed.

Local pollster Realmeter's survey of 503 adults nationwide conducted on Friday showed that 61.5 percent are against Chun's burial at the National Cemetery. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points with a confidence level of 95 percent.

The 87-year-old Chun, who served as president from 1980 to 1988, is legally eligible for burial at the National Cemetery, though he was deprived of privileges as a former president due to his criminal punishment on treason charges.
