> South Korea's disgraced President will accept the result of an impeachment vote if it goes against her later this week that's the word from her ruling party on Tuesday but there still a big question mark over when she'd actually leave office. Opposition lawmakers want Park Geun-hye out the door immediately but report say she and her allies are determined to wait until April to end her presidency.
Buying her party time to line up a replacement. Investigators have named Park as an accomplice in a scheme to squeeze 53 Korean companies for millions of dollars. If she's impeached, she'll be forced out unless a constitutional court rejects the motion. Park has offered to resign, but it could be academic at this point.
The opposition says they've got enough votes to impeach her including some from inside her own party. Adding to the drama on Tuesday nine heads of South Korea's biggest companies marched into parliament for a grilling on the presidential scandal, bosses from Hyundai and Samsung among them, their firms suspected of receiving favors in exchange for money.
It's the first time parliaments gathered such a large group of corporate execs into a hearing and it's expected to run well into the night. A gauntlet of protesters berated the company chief since they entered parliament just a taste of the anger that it seize the capital Seoul for the past six weekends.
And the growing momentum against the President who's all but guaranteed to leave office in shame.
