Former Miaoli County commissioner Liu Cheng-hung (劉政鴻) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday rebuffed criticism from incumbent Miaoli County Commissioner Hsu Yao-chang (徐耀昌) that Liu was “over-extravagant,” calling on Hsu to step down if he is is not up to the job.
Hsu, also a KMT member, was in Taipei on Friday to meet with Premier Mao Chi-kuo (毛治國), who he asked for a bailout because the county government is unable to pay its employees’ wages this month.
The commissioner attributed the “huge hole” of debt to the former county administration.
Liu yesterday said that there is no need for Hsu to “cry,” as he could “simply step down, if he is incompetent.” [FULL STORY]
