10-03-17: South Korean president ousted

By Anya Palm

Following a scandal allegedly  involving high-scale corruption, the South Korean Constitutional Court today upheld a parliamentary decision to impeach President Park Geun-hye.  As a consequence the President steps down.

She is the first democratically-elected President in the country to be untimely forced from office. http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20170310000352
