South Korean President Park Geun-Hye speaks during an address to the nation, at the presidential Blue House in SeoulBy Ju-min Park and Kim Daewoung SEOUL (Reuters) - President Park Geun-hye faces an impeachment vote in parliament on Friday over an influence peddling scandal that could lead to her becoming South Korea's first democratically elected leader to be removed from office in disgrace. There have been mass rallies every Saturday for the past six weeks calling for Park to quit, and opinion polls show overwhelming public support for her impeachment. Parliament is expected to vote in favor of impeachment, with support from some members of Park's conservative Saenuri Party, according to opposition parties but the Constitutional Court must decide whether to uphold the motion, a process that could take up to 180 days.
