Default S. Korea reinstates impeached president

Reinstated by a historic court ruling, President Roh Moo-hyun embarked Friday on a new era of liberal politics in the face of challenges on the economy, North Korea and the country's troop deployment to Iraq.

Just hours after the Constitutional Court ruled in Mr. Roh's favour, protesters rallied against his plan to send 3,600 troops to Iraq.

Mr. Roh apologized to the nation Saturday for the turmoil caused by his impeachment.

"I feel a heavier responsibility than when I first came into office," he said on national television, his first remarks to the nation since his reinstatement. "I will work hard so I do not let you down."

"Though the charges were not enough for impeachment, I don't think I shed all political and moral responsibilities.

Friday's ruling reversed an opposition-backed March 12 parliamentary impeachment vote and ended months of political paralysis in the world's 12th largest economy.

The ruling teams Mr. Roh with a new-look liberal parliament dominated by his supporters the first time in 16 years that a president has a friendly legislature. Late Friday, Mr. Roh accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Goh Kun, who ran the country for 63 days during the impeachment trial.

It appears that judicial appointment of the presidential figure is becoming quite popular in democratic societies.

I wonder if Mr. Roh takes the justices of the constitutional court duck hunting??
