President Tsai Ing-wen says she will humbly accept criticism of a controversial amendment to the labor
law. Tsai posted on her Facebook page on Tuesday after the amendment was pushed through amid scuffles during a review.
The preliminary review of the amendment met up with strong opposition from labor groups. Tsai said the public has given much valuable feedback concerning the amendment. Tsai said she would accept the criticism, regardless of whether it is directed at the Cabinet, lawmakers from her Democratic Progressive Party or at her personally.
Tsai said the government holds the responsibility for moving the nation forward. She said that she will take responsibility for pushing forward the amendment in her capacity as president and as chair of the ruling party.
