South Korea president says time to discuss amending constitution
[SEOUL] South Korea's President Park Geun Hye said on Monday it is the right time to discuss an amendment to the country's constitution, mainly expected to change the current single-term presidency, before her term is over.
"Through the single-term presidency, it is difficult to maintain policy continuance, see results of policy and engage in unified foreign policy," said Ms Park in an address to parliament.
The president requested a special committee be established immediately to start the discussions for the amendment.
The last amendment to the constitution was made in 1987.
