SEOUL, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's ruling Saenuri Party officially changed its name on Monday into Liberty Korea Party as part of efforts to renovate its image tainted by the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.
The name change was made five years after its predecessor Grand National Party altered its name into Saenuri Party in 2012.
In Myung-jin, the party's head, said the party must re-establish the conservative value and prepare for new South Korea by achieving a conservative reform.
Public support for the governing party tumbled to the lower range of 10 percent following the corruption scandal involving President Park and her longtime friend that led to Park's impeachment.
Some of the party members participate in pro-Park rallies every Saturday to demand the constitutional court's rejection of the impeachment motion that was passed in the parliament on Dec. 9 last year.
President Park maintains the party affiliation until now despite the party's call for her voluntary departure.
