South Korea finance minister calls emergency meeting after Park impeached - ministry official

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's finance minister Yoo Il-ho called an emergency meeting later on Friday to discuss the impact of the parliament's vote to impeach President Park Geun-hye.

"Time isn't set yet, but there will be one to discuss (financial markets)," a ministry official said, declined to be named.

The nation's parliament passed a motion to impeach Park earlier on Friday over a corruption scandal that could make her the first democratically elected leader to be removed from office.
