South Korea to hold presidential election on May 9

The Supreme Prosecutors' Office of the Republic of Korea [official website] on Tuesday announced plans to question ousted president Park Geun-hye about her involvement in the corruption scandal that led to her removal as the nation's leader.

The constitutional court unanimously upheld the motion to impeach Park on Friday, about three months after the motion was passed in the parliament by an overwhelming majority.

The very ties to Park's father that brought her such stunning success enveloped her in the political polarization of South Korean society between elderly conservatives, who revered her father's record of achievement, and younger progressives, who despised her father's dictatorial excesses and human rights violations.

A presidential palace spokesman denied Park had neglected to take her dogs, telling Reuters that a reason for the dogs staying at the residence since her departure was so they not part with their home. "From now onwards, I would like to focus on the tremendous responsibility as the acting president".
