After months of protests, Park Geun-Hye, South Korea’s first female president, is removed from her seat. She will face prosecutors seeking to charge her with bribery, extortion, and abuse of power in connection with her corruption scandals.
A political scientist from Seoul National University said:
This is a miracle, a new milestone in the strengthening and institutionalizing of democracy in South Korea.
Now, it is expected that the leaders of the opposition will take charge of the nation’s leadership. These leaders want to examine if it is still possible to rebuild ties with North Korea through aid and exchanges or if they will continue their joint operations with the United States toward North Korea. On the other hand, they are still cautious of the balance of relationships across Asia.
