Kim has won overall 77 votes out of 119 possible votes. He will serve as the ISU president until 2026. While taking the pledge he aims at increasing the sponsorship revenue and increasing the use of the latest technology in Skating for stronger protection of the athletes.

There is one more interesting and mind-blowing news coming out Lee Jae-Yong is been freed from the prosecution in the bribery case of 2021. This has happened recently when the South Korean judiciary refused to prosecute Lee, as he remained to be an unpaid director in Samsung Electronics since he was sacked in 2021.

Lee Jae-Yong has come out on bail but he has already been banned by the authority from the chair of the chief executive director for five years, from 2021 to 2026. The activist group is recently seen demanding to pardon Lee as the chair will remain vacant till 2026. The company executive lobby is also supporting the agenda, as they are foreseeing Samsung’s progress in the days to come.
