TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Democratic Progressive Party on Friday announced the members for the National Security Council and the new presidential spokesman who will take office on May 20.
President-elect Tsai Ing-wen and Premier-designate Lin Chuan have already named about all the 40 members of the new Cabinet, but some minor officials and positions at the Presidential Office had not been announced yet.
The new presidential spokesman is Alex Huang, currently head of the DPP’s news and information department. The Presidential Office Building will not be a new environment for the 44-year-old, since he already worked there when DPP lawmaker Chen Chi-mai served as vice secretary-general under President Chen Shui-bian, reports said.
