“IMPEACHMENT VS DENUNCIATION”
IMPEACHMENT and DENUNCIATION are both NOUNS.
They are mostly used in making sentences that talk about the government. But what is the difference
between the two? IMPEACHMENT is a charge of misconduct made against a public officer in which
a certain legal process must be followed before declaring to the nation that a public official has committed
some offense and why he or she should be removed from an office or position.
While DENUNCIATION on the other hand is where the public condemn someone whether a public officer
or not, the charge or accusation of crime made by an individual. Regardless of the process, they both end
up having the decision of whether to not dismiss an official.
The former Korean President Park was culminated with the political scandal involving interventions to the
presidency of her aide. Needless to say the denunciation of the public was also considered.
IMPEACHMENT: the process by which a legislative body formally levels charges against a high official of
DENUNCIATION: public condemnation of someone or something
MISCONDUCT: unacceptable or improper behavior, especially by an employee or professional person.
OFFENSE: an illegal act.
DISMISS: order or allow to leave; send away.
