The Democratic Progressive Party Wednesday slammed the KMT for being
absent in reforming the legislature which it controlled for decades and for trying to hastily pass the proposed legislative reform bill 3 days before the legislature adjourns for the year.
The legislature will adjourn from December 21-31. Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-ping called a party caucus negotiation Wednesday to discuss agenda for the last plenary meeting and whether to send the legislative reform bill directly for second reading in order for it to be passed before the legislature adjourns.
After two hours’ discussion, Wang announced that the legislative reform bill would not be passed in this session. [FULL STORY]
