South Korea President Impeached

0 642

koshSouth Korea’s parliament has voted to impeach President Park Geun-hye over a corruption scandal.

The National Assembly motion passed by 234 votes to 56, meaning some members of Ms Park’s ruling Saenuri party voted to impeach her.

She has been involved in a political scandal that led thousands of Koreans to take to the streets in recent weeks demanding her removal from power.

The vote means Ms Park is now suspended from her position, but the decision still needs final approval from the nine-judge constitutional court, which has six months to deliberate.
