South Korea Park approval rating slightly up to five percent - Gallup Korea

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s approval rating rose to 5 percent, according to a public opinion poll released on Friday, up from a record low of 4 pct last week as she faces an impeachment vote over a corruption scandal.

The poll also showed 81 percent of the respondents supported the impeachment of Park, which would make her the first democratically elected leader to be removed from office in disgrace.
