South Korea's three main opposition parties agreed Wednesday to stick to their plans to impeach President Park Geun-hye new balance 373 australia , dismissing as a stalling tactic her offer to resign if parliament arranges a safe transfer of power.
Park's conditional resignation offer Tuesday came as she faces nosediving approval ratings and massive street rallies calling for her ouster amid a huge political scandal involving her and a longtime shadowy confidante.
"The people of South Korea do not want to enter the new year with Park Geun-hye as president," Choo Mi-ae, leader of the main opposition Democratic Party new balance 1500 australia , said at the start of the meeting. "There is only one way under our constitution to halt a term of a president and that's an impeachment motion."
After the meeting, the three parties told a joint news conference that Park must step down immediately without setting any conditions and that their push for her impeachment remains unchanged.
The opposition parties agreed to put an impeachment motion to a vote as early as this Friday or meet again if this plan doesn't work, according to Yonhap news agency. The Democratic Party new balance 1400 australia , formerly known by its Korean-language name, Minjoo, couldn't immediately confirm the report.
The opposition have previously said they would try to impeach Park either this Friday or on Dec. 9 new balance 997 australia , when a parliamentary plenary session is scheduled.
Support from two-thirds of the 300-member parliament is needed to impeach Park. The three opposition parties and anti-Park independent lawmakers have a total of 172 seats, meaning they need help from dissenters in Park's ruling Saenuri Party.
It was unclear how much Park's overture could divide those who earlier supported her impeachment. But some in the Saenuri Party have already raised the need to review whether to try to impeach her or come up with other ways for her departure.
If impeached, Park's presidential powers are immediately suspended until the Constitutional Court makes a ruling on her fate. The court has 180 days of deliberation.
Park new balance 999 australia , in her Tuesday speech, continued to deny accusations by prosecutors that she colluded in the criminal activities of her longtime friend Choi Soon-sil, who new balance 998 australia , despite having no official role in government, allegedly had a say in policy decisions and exploited her presidential ties to bully companies into giving large sums of money to businesses and foundations that Choi controlled.
"If the ruling and opposition parties discuss and come up with a plan to reduce the confusion in state affairs and ensure a safe transfer of governments, I will step down from the presidential position under that schedule and by processes stated in law new balance 996 australia ," she said. Park refused to take any question from journalists after her comments.
Prosecutors have indicted Choi, two ex-presidential officials and a music video director known as a Choi associate for extortion, leaking confidential documents and other charges.
Park new balance 574 womens sale , who has immunity from prosecution while in office, has refused to meet with prosecutors. Her lawyer says the prosecutors' accusations are groundless.
Park is the daughter of late dictator Park Chung-hee, whose 18-year rule ended after he was gunned down by his own intelligence chief in 1979.
BEIJING， Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- To get from the nearest subway station to the kindergarten in Fengtai District of Beijing where she works only takes Ran-Ran two minutes and costs 1 yuan (14 U.S.cents).
Ran Ran， 22， who used to take a 10-minute stroll along the last section of her route， now uses a new bicycle-sharing service.
Provided mainly by two startups， Mobike and OFO Bicycle， these services run off a mobile apps. Compared with Beijing's public bicycle rental system， the service is more convenient and flexible.
"I just want a bike there when I need it，" said Hu Weiwei， founder of Mobike， in an interview with "Guangzhou Daily."
Ran Ran feels exactly the same and this is why she has become a bicycle-sharing zealot.
"I like to go to concerts but traffic around the concert halls is always terrible." Going by bike， Ran Ran never misses or arrives late for concerts any more.
Ran Ran is not alone. With constant complaints about air quality and congestion， Beijingers are keen to find greener and healthier ways of life and riding a bike is an obvious starting point in a city which is basically flat， and has a long history of being cycle-friendly.
Since Mobike started up in Dec. 2015， thousands of mobikes have appeared throughout the capital， said Xing Lin， general manager of Mobike Beijing. Xing expects Beijing and Shanghai to have about 100，000 mobikes each by the end of the year.
OFO started out as a student project in Peking University in September 2015. Co-founder Zhang Siding， said the company now has 2 million users and over 70，000 bikes on campuses across 20 cities. Each bike provides around seven rides each day.

Bicycle hire can complement government bicycle rental schemes， despite some squeaky wheels and unpredictable bumps in the road.
But the number of bikes the two companies have in Beijing seems far from enough and there have been many complaints on the Chinese twitter-like Sina Weibo， some more reasonable than others.
"So far， the services are only available within Beijing's 5th ring road. I hope it expands to cover more places，" said one Sina Weibo user.
Users can leave the bikes anywhere rather than specific rental booths， which makes management difficult.
"Some bikes are hidden， damaged or even stolen，" said Zhang Siding.
Lack of cycle tracks on the road and bad air quality also hampers the service. Xiao Mei， a 34-year-old Beijinger used to ride a bicycle to school when she was a student in the 1990s.
