South Korean President Park Huene-He sacked the Prime Minister of the country amid the ongoing political scandal that threatens to topple her administration.
The protesters are calling for Park to resign since last week was available information that allegedly her confidant and spiritual Advisor to Choi sung-SIL was made public secret government documents.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of Choi on charges of abuse of power and fraud, said the office of the Central district prosecutors in Seoul. In an apparent attempt to stop the scandal, the Park has named three new senior officials of her office. Kim Byung-Yeon, Professor, University of Seoul, will replace Hwang Kyo-An, as the Prime Minister confirmed the President's office.
In South Korea, the Premiership largely ceremonial position, but the holder serves as the right hand of the President. Iim Chung-Yong and Pak sung-Joo was named Minister of Finance and national security. Several presidential aides resigned in the scandal, including four senior Secretary responsible for issues such as political Affairs and policy coordination. Analysts doubt whether the Park can survive scandal by simply replacing your Cabinet.
