Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 10, 2017)
1. South Korea’s Constitutional Court draws public attention as it will give its verdict at 11 am today. If the court approves of the impeachment motion, the ruling is expected to be ‘formally oust President Park Geun-hye from office.’
Park said she was married to the Republic of Korea, and now she is divorced by the country. Well, she was not a good wife in the beginning.
2. President Park Geun-hye plans to give a televised address directly and indirectly after the Constitutional Court rules on whether to reinstate or formally oust her from office. If she is formally expelled from her post, she plans to return to her private residence in Samsung-dong, the place where the president originally planned to go back when she finishes her term.
Koreans do not have to listen to her after the impeachment motion is approved. What is she supposed to do now?
3. With the Constitutional Court’s ruling against President Park Geun-hye, there is an argument online that a presidential plane is witnessed. There are mixed views on whether the president seeks asylum or people cast excessive doubt on the president.
Park cannot use the plane she is suspended. Of course, I understand that she wants to run away from the situation.
