South Korea's Moon vows 'new history' after impeachment

South Korea's Moon vows 'new history' after impeachmentThe front-runner to succeed South Korea’s impeached president Park Geun-Hye on Sunday called for unity as the country writes a “new history”, while hundreds gathered outside the home of the ousted leader in a show of support. The Constitutional Court on Friday upheld a parliamentary vote to impeach Park, effectively removing her from office over a corruption scandal involving her close friend. A presidential election is to be held within 60 days of the ruling, with local media suggesting May 9 as the most likely date.
