SEOUL, Oct. 8 (Yonhap) -- Gyeonggi Province Gov. Lee Jae-myung, the presidential candidate of the ruling Democratic Party, is neck and neck with leading presidential hopefuls from the main opposition People Power Party (PPP) within the margin of error, a survey showed Wednesday.

According to a Gallup Korea survey of 1,006 adults held Tuesday and Wednesday, Lee had 43 percent support while former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-youl, the leading candidate of the PPP, won 40.4 percent in a hypothetical two-way competition.

However, the difference was within the survey's margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
