SEOUL (Reuters) - President Park Geun-hye on Friday said she hoped confusion surrounding South Korea's political crisis would soon be resolved after parliament voted to impeach her, adding that she would prepare for a court review of the impeachment motion.
Park, who was impeached by an overwhelming vote over a corruption scandal, apologised to the people at a meeting with her ministers and asked them to work with the prime minister to avoid any vacuum in national security matters and the economy.
Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn will be acting president while the Constitutional Court reviews the impeachment motion, a process that can take up to 180 days.
