South Korean politicians divided on Park's fate

IANS  |  Seoul 

South Korean politicians remain divided over how to let scandal-hit President Park Geun-hye resign after she threw the ball of decision on her fate to parliamentary court.

Choo Mi-ae, chairwoman of opposition Minjoo Party, and former ruling Saenuri Party Chairman Kim Moo-sung who was leading the anti-Park faction met on Thursday to discuss Park's removal, Xinhua news reported.

However, they failed to reach any agreement on detailed schedules and legal procedures for the president's resignation which Park demanded in her speech on Tuesday.

Addressing the nation for the third time since the scandal involving herself emerged in October, Park said she will defer her retreat, including the shortening of presidency, to the unicameral parliament.

Under the country's constitution, impeachment and constitutional amendment are the only options to cut short Park's single, five-year term as the scandal-plagued leader refused to resign voluntarily.
