    Liberal and conservative parties in South Korea are looking ahead to elections a day after impeached President Park Guen-hye left the official residence.

    Park is being criticised for her defiant vow that the truth over her dismissal will eventually be revealed.

    The main opposition party wants prosecutors to investigate her.

    Many South Koreans feel that it's time for an honest government to take charge.
