President Moon Jae-in accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn, a holdover from the former government, on Thursday as he strives to round out his own administration.

Hwang, who took office in June 2015, offered to resign Wednesday after Moon's victory in Tuesday's election. He had served as acting president since December when former President Park Geun-hye was impeached over a corruption scandal.

With his departure from office, Yoo Il-ho, the deputy prime minister for economic affairs, will serve as acting prime minister.

A farewell ceremony for Hwang will take place later in the day, officials said.
