TAIPEI, Taiwan — Kaohsiung City Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊) on Friday expressed her full support for Premier Lin Chuan (林全), saying she had absolute confidence in the performance of his Cabinet.

Chen made the statement in a radio interview conducted by Cheng Hung-yi (鄭弘儀), a well-known local TV and radio host.

Asked whether she was likely to replace Lin as premier in the near future, Chen said this was a presumptuous question that she did not prefer to answer.

There has been speculation that Chen would take over Lin’s post after she completes half of her second term in late December, when the central government can choose her successor directly instead of conducting a by-election.     [FULL  STORY]
