Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon has vowed to expand the city's free school meal program to include kindergartens.

He made the announcement Tuesday during a briefing at City Hall, saying he will swiftly proceed with the plan by calculating the exact cost per meal through consultations with the city council.

In order to ensure fairness, Oh said he also urged the government to push measures to provide similar support to cover the cost of meals at daycare centers as well.

Currently, the Seoul Metropolitan Government provides free lunches to all students from elementary through high school.

Oh returned to City Hall last month after winning a crucial by-election.

He had previously served as mayor of the capital from 2006 to 2011.

However, Oh resigned before the end of his term after his campaign to end free lunches for all elementary and middle school students was rejected by public referendum.
