TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) yesterday delivered his first municipal
report to the Taipei City Council, during which Kuomintang (KMT) councilors rejected the mayor’s report in unison, while Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) councilors defended Ko.
Yesterday not only marked Ko’s first municipal report since he took office as mayor, it was also the first routine general assembly of the council’s 12th session. Before the assembly, the mayor was seen around the council hall observing the environment, as well as being involved in discussions with his subordinates in preparation for his upcoming report.
During the assembly, Ko delivered his report, titled “A Better Taipei.” The report mainly addressed the idea that the mayor’s Taipei City Government is an open government, which seeks transparency and power for all. [FULL STORY]
