Constitutional Court chief urges verdict on Park impeachment by March 13

SEOUL, Jan. 25 (Yonhap) -- The outgoing chief of the Constitutional Court on Wednesday called for a verdict on President Park Geun-hye's impeachment by March 13 to ensure a fair trial.

Chief Justice Park Han-chul made the call at the start of the ninth hearing of the ongoing impeachment trial as he noted the end of his own term on Jan. 31 and that of fellow Justice Lee Jung-mi on March 13.

A ruling to unseat or reinstate Park requires the approval of six out of the court's nine justices.
