DP Threatens to Launch Anti-Gov’t Campaign

Chairwoman Choo Mi-ae of the main opposition Democratic Party(DP) says the party will have no other choice but to push for the resignation of President Park Geun-hye until she cancels her latest Cabinet reshuffle.

The opposition chief made the remarks on Monday during the party's Supreme Council meeting at the National Assembly.

Choo urged Park to step aside from state affairs, saying that the people have already lost confidence in the president amid public calls for her resignation.

She called on prosecutors to thoroughly investigate the Choi Soon-sil scandal, saying it is the last chance for it to prove itself to the people at a time when the people do not trust the prosecution.

DP Floor Leader Woo Sang-ho said that the parliament should look into how the Park administration has been introducing policies and bills favorable to conglomerates allegedly in return for receiving bribes.
