TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Kuomintang chairman and presidential candidate Eric Liluan Chu
on Wednesday presented plans for legislative reform, including a more neutral speaker.

Meetings of the Legislative Yuan should become more effective, negotiations more transparent, and the speaker should be impartial, he told the regular weekly meeting of the KMT’s Central Standing Committee Wednesday. [FULL STORY]
