South Korea's Female President "Willing To Resign"

President Park Geun-hye of South Korea has said she has asked parliament to help her find a way to stand down. Ms Park has been facing growing calls to resign amid an investigation into whether she allowed a long-time friend to influence political decisions for personal gain.

She said, "I leave to parliament everything about my future including shortening of my term".

An impeachment motion had been scheduled in parliament this Friday.
