Pro-Park Lawmakers to Demand President's Resignation

Senior Saenuri lawmakers loyal to President Park Geun-hye have agreed to demand she step down before being impeached by the National Assembly over the Choi Soon-sil scandal.

Multiple ruling party lawmakers told Yonhap news agency on Monday that senior lawmakers from the pro-Park faction within the ruling party held a closed-door meeting on Monday and agreed to directly propose the president take an “honorary resignation.”

The pro-Park lawmakers reportedly agreed with proposals made by former assembly speakers and politicians, who called on Park to resign by April at the latest. However, the lawmakers did not specify when the president should step down.

Participants of the meeting included Representatives Suh Chung-won, Jung Kab-yun, Choi Kyung-hwan, Yoo Ki-june and Yoon Sang-hyun.
