The Cabinet is set to deliberate on the parliament's plan to appoint an independent counsel to probe the Choi Soon-sil scandal.
The Office for Government Policy Coordination on Monday revealed the agenda for the Cabinet meeting Tuesday, including the special counsel bill.
Asked whether the president can veto the bill, Presidential Spokesman Jung Youn-kuk reminded reporters of Park's previous remarks that she will accept the probe by an independent counsel.
Under the bill, the president will appoint the independent counsel among two candidates that will be recommended by the main opposition Democratic Party and minor opposition People's Party.
The special probe team will consist of one independent counsel, 20 prosecutors and 40 investigators. The team will prepare for its probe for 20 days from the day the counsel is appointed. Then for the next 70 days, the team will wrap up investigations and decide whether or not to seek indictments.
The team can extend its probe once by up to 30 days if approved by the president.
