> The ultimate crushing blow for South Korea's disgraced president. A huge majority of parliament voting to impeach Park Geun-hye on Friday. Law makers from all sides approving a historic bill to ouster over a corruption scandal and immediately suspend her powers. Park's accused of colluding to squeeze top Korean companies for millions of dollars.
Now, here fate lies in the hands of nine high judges at a constitutional court. They'll decide whether or not to overturn the vote, which could take up to six months. In the mean time, Park will keep her official title, but all of her duties will fall to the Prime Minister.
Who now faces an opposition-led parliament likely to thwart his every move. Leading up to the vote on Friday. Anti-Park protesters and the tens of thousands rallied. And clashed with police, demanding that the president be pushed out of power. If she does end up having to leave office, Park will no longer have presidential immunity.
Meaning she could be prosecuted for bribery and abuse of power just to start.
