Park Geun-hye's Impeachment Special: Victory to Democratic-minded Koreans and Cao Wei Faction of Koihime Musou - an Address from the Moe Representative of CheongYang County


Thank you my fellow Koreans! Thank you for coming to this special address and your overwhelming support to bring down the most incompetent president in the history of the Sixth Republic, Park Geun-hye! If you still remember Cao Cao... no. I mean... Cho Hwa-rim who formerly supported Park Geun-hye during Presidential Election 2012, she's no longer to support that vile president. 

Let me introduce myself. I'm Cao Hong, the younger sister of Cao Cao. You can call me Cho Young-hwa, the Koreanised version of my real name, Eika. It has been four years Park Geun-hye helmed the Korean Republic Government. Unfortunately, my sister is no longer to advise her wrongdoings and every governmental orders leaked to her best friend, Choi Soon-sil. That day, she sobbed and told me, 
"Young-hwa, Madame Park doesn't listen to me anymore. She defies every single warning about her maladministration but... it won't work." 

That time, I was infuriated to hear this problem and thought the alternative way to stop this vicious cycle. One day, a handful of Koreans met me and expressed the same problem. I think... it wouldn't be helped anymore unless I participated the protest to demand Park Geun-hye to step down as the President of the Republic of Korea.

Friday - December 9th 2016, Park Geun-hye was impeached by the nation’s National Assembly, signalling an ignominious end to a term that had become mired in a corruption scandal. The impeachment vote required at least 28 of Park’s fellow Saenuri Party lawmakers to cross the aisle to make up the majority two-thirds of the 300-seat legislature. Surprisingly, the final vote was 234 to 56 in favour of impeachment. Park is suspended with immediate effect although the vote needs to be ratified by the nation’s Constitutional Court within 180 days to become permanent.

The nation’s Prime Minister, Hwang Kyo-ahn who was once removed by Park Geun-hye's government - takes over Park’s responsibilities in the interim, though Park had already offered to resign if lawmakers voted against her. After the National Assembly's motion for Park Geun-hye's Impeachment, the fight for demanding that vile president to step down still goes on.

Finally in March 10th 2017, the Constitutional Court of Korea upheld the impeachment in a unanimous eight-zero decision without former President of the Court - Park Han-chul, terminating Park's presidency, and making it the first time that a sitting president was removed from the office since the Sixth Republic of South Korea was set up after the country's democratisation.

The court cited as “grave violations” of the constitution the allegations that Park colluded with her long-time friend Choi Soon-sil to extort Korean conglomerates to donate more than $69 million to two dubious foundations. Choi was alleged to have a “cult-like” influence over Park and control over her staff, even though she had no official government role.

I would like to thank you to Madame Justice Lee Jung-mi for upheld the impeachment of Park Geun-hye. I heard that she served as the Acting President of the Constitutional Court of Korea after Park Han-chul's tenure ended on January 31st 2017. This is the last high-profiled case handled by her before she will retire on March 15th 2017.

Moreover, I would like to thank you to the remaining seven justices, Kang il-won, Ahn Chang-ho, Lee Jin-sung, Kim Yi-su, Kim Chang-jong, Seo Ki-seok and Cho Yong-ho for supporting their move to impeach Park Geun-hye and subsequently ended her term as the President of the Republic of Korea disgracefully.

Now, Park Geun-hye is NO MORE. Let us celebrate this auspicious moment but remember, don't be too overjoyed, Koreans! We have 58 days more for the next presidential election which is held on May 2017. To all young Korean voters, choose your presidential candidate wisely because your vote will propel the Republic of Korea back to the right track!

Before I end my speech, I hope that the next presidential election will be dominated by the centrists. The presidential candidates among the centrists will be announced in the particular time.

That's all for today, thank you.


Take Fivers: Cao Wei faction and the beloved Republic of Korea.

Park Geun-hye, OUT.


Extract from the Korea Herald:
Park Geun-hye ousted
Friend’s meddling in state affairs key reason behind historic ruling

written by Ock Hyun-ju



South Korea’s Constitutional Court on Friday ruled unanimously to remove President Park Geun-hye from office, the capstone of a sweeping corruption scandal that has engulfed the country for months. 

“Hereby, in a unanimous decision, the court issues the verdict: the court rules to expel President Park Geun-hye,” acting Chief Justice Lee Jung-mi said in a nationally televised ruling. 

With the decision, which is final and unchallengeable, Park has become the nation’s first democratically elected leader to be ousted by impeachment. The nation now must hold a presidential election within 60 days, making it likely to fall on May 9. Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn, who has been substituting for Park since her parliamentary impeachment on Dec. 9, will continue to lead the nation until the next leader is elected. 

“Her violations of the law betrayed the public trust and they are too serious to be tolerated for the sake of protecting the Constitution,” said Lee who read out the verdict. 

Park had abused her presidential authority to help her longtime confidante Choi Soon-sil, who holds no government post, pursue personal gains, she added. Choi’s meddling in state affairs was extensive throughout Park’s entire time in office, and Park even attempted to conceal her wrongdoings when the scandal laid them bare. 

“The interest of guarding the Constitution by firing her is judged to be overwhelmingly great,” she concluded. 

Park offered no message of concession. Her Liberty Korea Party, however, accepted the decision and apologised to the public for its failure to assist the president as the ruling party.

Violence erupted near the court, as thousands of staunch Park supporters protested the ruling. They angrily reacted, shouting, shedding tears and even hitting police officers. Two died of injuries while protesting and the causes of their deaths are still unknown, the police said. Acting President Hwang, in a public statement, called on both supporters and opponents of the ousted Park to accept the ruling and restore national unity. 

Park was impeached on a total of 13 charges, which the court bundled into five categories -- bribery, abuse of authority, Choi’s manipulation of power behind the scenes, failure to protect people’s lives and violation of press freedom. The court recognised Park’s active involvement in leaking government secrets to Choi and assisting Choi’s profit-making activities through public entities. But it did not acknowledge Park’s other charges -- her abuse of authority in sacking officials not in Choi’s favour, her negligence of duty in protecting people’s lives during the Sewol ferry disaster and her crackdown on press freedom. 

One of Park’s lawyers for the impeachment trial called the ruling “biased.”

“Our suspicions about the court’s secret communications with the parliament turned out to be correct,” Seo Seog-goo, one of Park’s lawyers, told reporters. “I don’t think the trial was purely based on law and conscience.”

The parliament, which served as the prosecution in the impeachment trial, hailed the decision, adding the nation should now stand united. 

“I believe that the ruling confirmed the rule of law and people’s sovereignty, which embodies that every person, even the president, is equal before the law. The owner of the country is the people, and all power comes from the people,” said Kwon Seong-dong, the chairman of the parliamentary legislation and judiciary committee. 

“Those who held candles or national flags, they are all our people who we should respect and love. There is no victor or loser in this case,” he added. 

President Park, who did not turn up at the courtroom throughout the trial, also did not attend the verdict hearing. She reportedly watched the ruling via TV at her residence in the presidential office. 

Park’s departure is unlikely to put an end to the monthslong crisis, which has caused the country to become deeply divided on generational and ideological lines in the face of the conservative leader’s impeachment. 

While opponents of Park gear up to hold a rally to celebrate the result Saturday, Park’s die-hard supporters are set to pour onto the streets to condemn the top court. Tensions ran high from Thursday evening near the court, as avid protesters for and against former President Park staged rallies in front of the building in last-bid attempts to make their voices heard. 

The police raised the level of alert to its highest Friday, dispatching all forces available to mobilise in the nation’s capital. Scores of police buses and some 21,600 officers formed lines to cordon off the court and government offices from mass protests and possible eruptions of violence.
