Park Geun-hye of the ruling Saenuri Party will retain her position as president until her term ends in 2017, despite various recent political scandals, including the response to the sinking of the Sewol ferry in April 2014.

The ferry disaster had a muted impact on the ruling party at the local elections held on June 4th. However, Park Geun-hye is not off the hook yet, with the Saenuri Party set to hold its convention and elect new leaders in July.

The government will continue to pursue economic policies that promote domestic demand growth and an expansion of the services sector, in order to reduce South Korea's dependence on exports.
