SEOUL, Korea, Republic Of â€” Hundreds of police officers, reporters and supporters of ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye have gathered near her Seoul home in anticipation of her return from the presidential palace.
An official from the presidential Blue House said Sunday that there was a possibility that Park would leave in the evening, two days after the country’s constitutional Court removed her from office over a corruption scandal.
Workers were seen carrying a television, washing machine, bed and other household items into Park’s private home.
The court on Friday unseated Park amid suspicions that she colluded with a confidante to extort money and favours from companies and allowed the friend to secretly manipulate state affairs.
The country now has to elect a new president by early May.
