The ruling Saenuri Party has urged a thorough investigation into allegations against President Park Geun-hye after the prosecution announced that the president is suspected of having played a role in the corruption and influence-peddling scandal involving her close confidant and aides.
Party spokesman Yeom Dong-yeal said on Sunday in a news briefing that the people should not jump to conclusions over whether the president colluded with her friend Choil Soon-sil and presidential aides because she has not been investigated yet.
The party called for a swift and thorough investigation into the allegations against Park by the prosecution and an independent counsel.
The party also offered a sincere apology to the people and sought their forgiveness over the Choi Soon-sil scandal.
It also called for parties to halt partisan confrontations and end disputes to normalize state affairs.
