Park to calmly accept impeachment if passed

South Korean President Park Geun-hye said Tuesday that she will calmly accept the impeachment if it is passed in the scheduled parliamentary vote three days later.


She made the comments during an hour-long meeting with the ruling Saenuri Party's chairman and floor leader in the presidential office Tuesday afternoon.

Saenuri Party whip Chung Jin-suk told reporters after coming back to the National Assembly building that President Park has continued to consider accepting the party's call to let the president resign by next April to hold an early presidential election two months later.

Park said she will calmly accept the impeachment if it is passed through the unicameral assembly slated for this Friday, vowing to make every effort she can if the impeachment bill is approved.

Opposition and independent lawmakers handed in the bill to impeach the first South Korean female leader last Saturday. As there are 172 legislators from the opposition bloc, at least 28 Saenuri lawmakers must endorse the bill to overcome the two-thirds threshold of the 300-seat parliament.
