How Likely Is an Impeachment of South Korea's Park?

Updated on

South Korea’s opposition pressed forward with plans for impeachment proceedings against Park Geun-hye on Friday, as an ally of the president said she was “ready” to face the vote.

Park was prepared to accept the results, Chung Jin-suk, floor leader of the ruling Saenuri Party, said in televised comments Tuesday after meeting with the president. If parliament votes in favor of impeaching her, Chung said she would wait for the constitutional court to rule on the measure.
