The presidential office has congratulated ruling Saenuri Party presidential contender Park Geun-hye on her victory in the 18th presidential
Presidential spokesman Park Jeong-ha on Wednesday said he sincerely congratulates Park on her victory together with the people and hopes the
citizens’ great choice will lead to national unity and happiness amongst the people.
I find this to be good news, and interesting
news...considering N.Korea's recent activities...
Good on South Korea for this first major step, in trying to bring some sort of rapprochement within the South Korean political spheres.
Here's a pictures of the new lady in charge, with her late father.
Acting Prime Minister Wayne Swan says the government is looking forward to working with South Korea's new leader.
There turn out at the polling stations was huge. With 94 per cent of the vote counted, Ms Park had received 51.6 per cent, compared with 48 per cent
for her only rival, Moon Jae-in.
I for one think this is great news and wish Ms Park the very best in her new role as South Korea's President.
Ms Park was mobbed by flag-waving supporters outside her home in the Gangnam district of Seoul as it became clear she had fended off a late surge
by Mr Moon. She later thanked her staff before making a brief appearance in front of crowds in central Seoul. Her victory, she said, was a sign that
the country's economy would recover.
