PM Troubles Bring S. Korean President’s Leadership into Question


South Korean President Park Geun-hye turned down the resignation of Prime Minister Chung Hong-won on Thursday. Instead she asked him to remain in his position after two potential candidates were unable to step up to the plate.

The decision to keep the Prime Minister, who resigned following the government's flawed response to the sunken ferry disaster, raised concerns about the President’s ability to rule and make reforms.
