Well, I guess the U.S. isn’t the only country that has voted for change in their presidency recently. It looks like South Korea has opted for a new look to the person that leads their country as well.
As reported on Yahoo.com:
The daughter of a former military ruler won South Korea’s presidential election on Wednesday and will become the country’s first female leader, saying she would work to heal a divided society.
The 60-year old conservative, Park Geun-hye, will return to the presidential palace in Seoul where she served as her father’s first lady in the 1970s, after her mother was assassinated by a North Korean-backed gunman.
With more than 88 percent of the votes counted, Park led with 51.6 percent to 48 percent for her left-wing challenger, human rights lawyer Moon Jae-in, giving her an unassailable lead that forced Moon to concede.
An elated Park reached into the crowd to grasp hands of supporters wearing red scarves, her party’s color.
“This is a victory brought by the people’s hope for overcoming crisis and for economic recovery,” she told supporters at a rally in central Seoul.”
It looks like the cries for change in political structures are being heard across the world. Congratulations goes out to Ms. Geun-Hye. I pray she has a successful 5-year presidency!
God knows she wil need all of the prayer she can get while trying to negotiate peace with
