SEOUL, May 2 (Yonhap) -- Fourteen lawmakers will defect from the conservative Bareun Party with the presidential election just seven days away, sources said Tuesday.

The lawmakers reached the decision after the party's presidential candidate Yoo Seong-min refused to drop out in support of Hong Joon-pyo of the Liberty Korea Party as a boost to conservatives.
