LAWMAKERS FROM OPPOSITION PARTIES REMOVE A URI PARTY LAWMAKER FROM SPEAKER'S SEAT IN SEOUL.
Lawmakers from opposition parties remove a Uri Party lawmaker (C), who backs President Roh Moo-hyun, from speaker's seat in parliament in Seoul March 12, 2004. South Korea's opposition-dominated parliament passed an unprecedented bill on Friday to impeach President Roh for violating election laws. Parliamentary officials said at a rowdy televised session 193 members of the 273-seat National Assembly had voted for the bill to remove the 57-year-old former human rights lawyer from office, more than the two-thirds majority of 181 occupied seats required.
