President Kim Dae-jung said on February 29, at a state council meeting,"Don't feel obligated to hire people from certain regions and high schools."

According to a spokesman from the Blue House, Kim Dae-jung emphasized,"In the past a clique was made up with a center consisiting of only some high schools.These days such a phenomenon is also developing in some southern regions and it is inexcusable."

DJ added,"Everyone, including ministers, should be careful to stop such occurrences."
