MOSCOW, December 15 (Sputnik) — A majority of South Koreans, 52.1 percent, said they disapprove of South Korean President Park Geun-hye's performance, the lowest proportion since she was elected in February 2013, Yonhap news agency reported Monday.

The Realmeter polling agency interviewed 2,500 South Korean citizens last Monday through Friday, finding out that only 39.7 percent of respondents approved of the job Park is doing as a president, Yonhap reported. The estimate, which has a 2 percent margin of error, is 6.6 percent lower than the figure for the week before.

Unhappiness with Park has been growing since November, when an internal document revealing that the president’s adviser Jeong Yun-hoe had been interfering in government affairs leaked to the media.

Political competition between the president and her younger brother Ji-man is likely the reason for the leak, according to Yonhap.
