South Korea to hold presidential election May 9

Acting South Korean President Hwang Kyo-ahn

The photo line set up for photographers at Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office, ahead of former President Park Geun-hye's questioning, March 15.

Ousted leader Park Geun-hye has denied any wrongdoing. "From now onwards, I would like to focus on the tremendous responsibility as the acting president".

The Constitutional Court dismissed Park on Friday last week when it upheld a December parliamentary impeachment vote. Her removal will help bring about an end to the political vacuum that South Korea has been in for the past three months, as preparations are now underway to replace her.

The Constitutional Court Friday found Park had "continuously" violated the law and the constitution.

South Koreans will elect a new president on May 9. Prosecutors plan to weigh whether to request an arrest warrant after questioning Park.

Even after her impeachment, she remains defiant.

Ms Park told staff members to take good care of the dogs before leaving the Blue House on Sunday, the spokesman added, but that was not enough to prevent a fierce backlash. Park's legal team has reportedly said she would actively cooperate with the prosecution office's investigation. Park's attorneys said the same day that she would appear.

In last year's initial probe, the prosecution identified Park as a co-conspirator in eight charges including abuse of power, coercion and leaks of national secrets.

SK Group is suspected of donating large sums to foundations set up by her confidante Choi Soon-sil, in return for favors including a presidential pardon for imprisoned SK Group Chairman Chey Tae-won.

Dozens of high-profile figures including some top Park administration officials and Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong have already been indicted. Lee, who has been effectively running the huge conglomerate since his father, Lee Kun-hee, was hospitalized nearly three years ago, is facing charges including bribery, embezzlement, perjury and violating the law on transferring assets overseas.
