Around 1.8 million people are attending protests in South Korea calling for scandal-plagued President Park Geun-hye to resign over alleged corruption. Meanwhile, opposition parties have introduced a long-promised impeachment bill.

Seoul is once again the scene of the largest of the demonstrations, with the Korea Times reporting that 1.5 million people attended the protest in the nation’s capital.

Some of those gathered in Seoul carried huge banners depicting Park in a prisoner’s uniform, while thousands held up signs urging the president to step down.

The latest march comes as three opposition parties introduced an impeachment motion backed by 171 members of the 300-seat National Assembly. The vote on impeachment is scheduled to take place on December 9.

“We hereby propose impeachment proceedings to protect the constitution and restore constitutional order by removing President Park Geun-hye from office,” the motion said.
