Hualien County Councilor Liu Hsiao-mei (劉曉玫) of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) yesterday protested Hualien County Council’s decision last week to temporarily suspend her after she opposed a bill to adjust the schedule of the council’s plenary question-and-answer session.
Liu’s rights as county councilor are suspended for three months.
Liu decried the council’s decision yesterday at a news conference in Taipei, saying that suspending the rights of an elected county councilor is both unprecedented and illegal. [FULL STORY]
