South Korean President Park Geun-hye Has Been Officially Fired


Seoul, South Korea  South Korea's Constitutional Court has upheld a decision by the country's National Assembly to impeach President Park Geun-hye over alleged corruption.

The unprecedented decision was unanimous, with all eight judges on the court voting to remove Park, the country's first female president, from office. South Koreans immediately took to the streets, with some groups protesting against the decision and others celebrating her removal from power.

The decision was revealed by Justice Lee Jung-mi Friday in a live broadcast that gripped the nation.
"We announce the decision as the unanimous opinion of all judges. We dismiss the defendant President Park," said Lee.

    I found this summary of Korean presidents to-date:

    1st President - impeached because of rigged election, defected to Hawaii

    2nd President - resigns due to coup, sentenced 3 years imprisonment in court-martial

    3rd President - wife shot by guy trying to kill him, soon after killed by close adviser

    4th President - couldn't control demonstrations, resigns due to Gwangju Massacre after just 8 months in office

    5th President - sentenced to death for his role in the Gwangju Massacre, later pardoned

    6th President - arrested for bribery after term, imprisoned 17 years for munity and treason during Gwangju Massacre, later pardoned

    7th President - economic crisis forcing IMF to step in during term, second son arrested for bribery of intercession and tax evasion

    8th President - 5 family members including his 3 sons guilty of bribery

    9th President - "slips and dies" while climbing a mountain during investigations for bribery

    10th President - brother arrested, wife's cousin arrested, accused of violating real estate laws

    11th President - daughter of 3rd president, puppet of a cult leader, impeached


    Twelfth time's the charm, hopefully!

    There is a group within South Korea called the "National Intelligence Services" I believe, basically South Korea's equivalent to the CIA, and some may suggest, as well as my observations, that they essentially select the next South Korean leader politburo-style, or at least heavily influence elections for a pre-desired outcome, and that South Korea's political system, while operating under a veneer of Westernization, is actually more similar to North Korea's than many would like to admit.

    That's actually a really interesting (accurate) comment.
