Former chairman of the minor opposition People's Party Ahn Cheol-soo completely rejected President Park's Friday address, and called for her to step down.
He says the president continues to shift responsibility and fails to take the public's will into account.
Rather than stepping aside and turning over power to a prime minister supported by both rival parties, Ahn said the president is declaring that she will continue with business as usual.
He faulted the president for failing to say anything at all about her contested prime minister nominee, and for refusing to take questions from reporters.
