SEOUL, March 4 (Yonhap) -- The main opposition Liberty Korea Party (LKP) announced Monday its decision to end its boycott of parliamentary activities.

The National Assembly has been idle since Jan. 24 amid tensions over a raft of allegations of government abuse of power, a controversial appointment and a former ruling party lawmaker's purchases of properties in cultural zones.

"We've decided to open parliament. We will submit a request to convene the National Assembly today," LKP floor leader Na Kyung-won told a press conference.

"As a responsible opposition party, we've made the decision because we have nothing to expect from the ruling Democratic Party (DP)," she added.

Na Kyung-won, floor leader of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, holds a press conference in Seoul on March 4, 2019, in which she said the party has decided to open parliament. (Yonhap)
