last modified Mar 10, 2017 02:04 PM

The unanimous eight-person Constitutional Court ruling, that upheld last December's National Assembly decision to impeach President Park Geun-hye, has finally swept away the uncertainty that has paralysed South Korea for months. A BBC World News Asia website article by Dr John Nilsson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations and Senior Research Fellow in the Asia Programme at Chatham House, examines the historical background to the case and its implications for the immediate future of South Korea.
