SEOUL, June 21 (Yonhap) -- A parliamentary committee on Wednesday adopted a report on the outcome of a confirmation hearing for Land and Transport Minister-nominee Kim Hyun-mee, paving the way for her official appointment.

The adoption of the report is a key part of the parliamentary confirmation process before President Moon Jae-in formally appoints Kim, a lawmaker of the ruling Democratic Party.

The report's publication was delayed amid criticism of her alleged thesis plagiarism in 2001 and unproven expertise in ministry affairs.
