As exit poll results are announced, leaders of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party all remain silent. The party suffered a crushing defeat. Party chairman Hong Joon-pyo left the scene without a word after 10 minutes of watching the exit polls. The LKP aimed to win at least 6 governor and mayoral posts and 4 parliamentary seats. The party issued a statement saying it is at a complete loss.

[Soundbite] Rep. Kim Sung-tae(Liberty Korea Party) : "The outcome is more dismal than expected but we humbly accept, viewing it as the public's choice."
