Former Chairman Ahn Cheol-soo of the minor opposition People's Party has welcomed a former opposition chief's decision to participate in a nationwide campaign to push for President Park Geun-hye's resignation.
Ahn on Tuesday hailed the announcement by former chief Moon Jae-in of the main opposition Democratic Party, saying that now is the time to join forces.
In a meeting with reporters at Seoul Station, Ahn expressed hope that Moon will join efforts to oust the president to help the country tide over the crisis.
He also urged the president to announce her political resignation before being probed by the prosecution over the Choi Soon-sil scandal to ensure a fair and thorough investigation.
