Age deciding factor in one S. Korea election

Election officials have awarded Lho Sang Soon a seat on a local council in the southwestern city of Namwon after he and his younger rival Chung Joon Shik garnered an identical 1,016 votes in Tuesday's poll.

"When you have two or more people winning the most votes, then the rule in the country is to decide in favor of the elder," an election official said.

Lho, 59, is 18 years older than Chung.
