South Korean President Steps down days after of her removal
South Korea’s ousted President Park Geun-hye left the executive mansion Sunday, two days after the Constitutional Court voted to remove her from office.
Park left the mansion known as the Blue House, and is headed to her private home in southern Seoul, according to her spokesman Kim Dong-jo. North Korea praised her removal, describing it as a “destructive end” for the nation’s first female head of state. In a statement on state media Saturday, a North Korean official described Park as an “incomprehensible and outrageous lunatic.”
“It is the consensus evaluation of the nation that the destructive end of Park Geun-hye is the historical victory of the justice of the people,” the unnamed spokesman for North Korea’s National Reconciliation Council said in a statement on KCNA, North Korea’s official state news agency.
