President Park may issue apology over government's handling of ferry disaster
Updated: 2014-04-29 04:14:06 KST

All eyes are on whether President Park Geun-hye will say sorry for the government's handling of the Sewol-ho ferry tragedy,.. with some speculating an apology could come during a Cabinet meeting this Tuesday morning.
Both ruling and opposition parties have said an apology is due,.. given the scale of the accident that left more than 3-hundred people dead or missing, and the inefficient and slow rescue operation following the disaster.
After approving Prime Minister Chung Hong-won's resignation, pundits say it seems highly likely President Park will issue an apology herself,.. while assuring the public she will institute far-reaching reforms and reshuffle her Cabinet.
