Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 14, 2017)
1. The floor leaders of four major parties in South Korea agreed to accept the Constitutional Court’s impeachment decision. The four political parties reached a verbal agreement on whether the court upholds or overturn the National Assembly’s impeachment motion against President Park Geun-hye.
They are ‘free’ to make an agreement, but I think this is NOT ‘right.’ This is not ‘democracy’ without ‘people.’
2. Barun Party came up with brinkmanship. The party argues that all members of the opposition party will step down if the impeachment motion is overturned. However, they argue all members of Liberal Party of Korea (formerly known as Saenuri Party) have to resign if the Constitutional Court upholds the decision.
Barun Party lawmakers who used to be in Saenuri Party try to act like opposition party members. They are all the same.
