Scrambling to defuse a massive scandal, South Korean President Park Geun-hye Tuesday conceded to lawmakers the power to name her new prime minister, a move that could seriously hurt, or even destroy, her ability to govern.These scenarios would destroy Park's authority as president during her last 15 months in office, forcing her to voluntarily yield large parts, or maybe even all, of her presidential powers to a prime minister named by an opposition-controlled legislature.Park's ruling party is divided between those who support Park and those who don't.Park's office said Tuesday those conditions endorsed by Park would still stand for a new nominee.
