South Korea's election watchdog will be receiving registrations for candidates running for the April 15 general election until 6 PM, Korea time.
Many candidates have already completed the process, renewing their resolve to claim victory.
Starting April 2nd, candidates can launch their official election campaign but until then only limited campaigning is allowed, such as handing out business cards and setting up election offices.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the National Election Commission says it decided to stop the absentee ballot process for South Korean citizens living in Italy and 16 other badly-affected countries.
The decision was made to protect overseas South Koreans due to lockdowns in those regions.
