The Executive Yuan and the Legislative Yuan yesterday agreed to
shelve the review of controversial bills during the three-month period before president-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) is inaugurated on May 20.
Premier Simon Chang (張善政) visited the Legislative Yuan to meet with Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) and the legislative caucuses to talk about the processing of bills during the interim period.
After a half-hour closed-door meeting, Su said that all caucuses agreed that the review of controversial bills should be suspended before Tsai is sworn in.
“However, the Legislative Yuan cannot lay idle either, so we have asked Premier Chang to send bills [related to the economy and public welfare] to the legislature,” Su said. [FULL STORY]
