Protesters staged a rally outside the ruling party headquarters in Seoul on Wednesday, demanding that the party's members vote to impeach South Korean President Park Geun-hye over corruption allegations. The impeachment vote is due to be held in the National Assembly on Friday. President Park has been the subject of severe criticism because of her close ties to a mysterious confidante named Choi Soon-sil, who edited her speeches and influenced her decisions. Her leadership style and management of the country has also come under fire from the population.
