The suspension of Park's power was made Friday when her office received a copy of the impeachment motion hand-delivered by National Assembly officials.
Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn now steps in as acting president until the country's Constitutional Court deliberates on whether to formally end her presidency or reinstate her. The court has up to 180 days.
