SEOUL (REUTERS) - South Korea's acting president said on Friday (March 10) that the Cabinet would stabilise the country to prevent internal conflict from intensifying.
He was speaking hours after a Constitutional Court decision to uphold a parliamentary impeachment vote and remove President Park Geun Hye from office sparked violent protests.
"I respect the Constitutional Court's decision ... The Cabinet should carry out state affairs in a stable way and manage social order to prevent internal conflict from intensifying," Prime Minister Hwang Kyo Ahn, who became acting president in December, told a Cabinet meeting.
Mr Hwang asked relevant ministries to prepare quickly for a presidential election to be held within 60 days.
