The main opposition Democratic Party said on Sunday that the grounds for impeaching President Park Geun-hye have been met as the prosecution announced that the president played a role in the corruption and influence-peddling scandal involving her close confidant and aides.
Party spokesman Yun Kwan-seok, however, criticized the prosecution for omitting a bribery charge against the president, calling it a move to protect her.
Repeating its calls for the president's resignation, the party called on the prosecution to forcibly summon and question the president immediately.
The minor opposition People's Party also said that with the probe results, the grounds for impeaching the president have been met.
Party spokesman Sohn Keum-joo called on the president to take responsibility for the scandal and step down.
