A draft presidential and vice presidential transition act will be a priority bill in 6735630the coming legislative session that begins on Feb. 19, Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan said on Tuesday.

The purpose of the draft, which is slated to be proposed by the Democratic Progressive Party, is to institutionalize transition of power in the country and make it a smooth process in the future, Su said.

Each caucus can list not only one but a few bills as its priority bills, Su said in response to a media question after presiding over a religious ceremony at the Tien Tan Temple in Tainan City on Tuesday.

There are no legal rules to follow for the changeover of the country’s presidents, so the DPP has listed the draft presidential and vice presidential transition act as a priority bill, Su added.     [FULL  STORY]
