After spending a little time on this,
There are some advantages and disadvantages with how communism and capitalism relate and arrive at decisions. Short term profits and long term trends
as well as issues of stability and accountability do create large divisions with the separation and structures of political power.
On a state level, NK and SK still sort out their own issues. On the national level, the party system from Westminster politics does provide a strong
platform for discussion on conflicting issues. NK and SK gets 50 seats each in a new parliament so these complex differences can get the resources and
time they need. When both sides can agree, great if not it still stays in the too hard basket for a bit longer.
As for head of state, the Emperor has some claim but would limit power to the functioning of parliament, not parliament issues. So if someone is
making too many waves it is the Emperors job to sort it out, but he does not have power in telling parliament how to vote. There will probably be some
blurring of these lines or the Emperor may not even want the troubles. Otherwise if some other agreeable head of state can be found, great.
One way to ease into this could be through a reconciliation committee to help establish the guidelines and technicalities for developing a platform of
political debate across this DMZ. Start of with a team of 5 or 10 on each side to help define some of the boundaries and establish better
communication protocols. As more responsible platform for discussion hardens, it can expand to help work through the issues of Korean Unification in
its due time..
