Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) lawmakers yesterday pounded on their desks in the Legislative Yuan’s
main assembly chamber before Premier Lin Chun (林全) presented the Cabinet’s policy report, calling for the resignation of the premier and Minister of Transportation and Communications Hochen Tan (賀陳旦).
On the first day of the new legislative plenary session, when Lin was scheduled to present the policy report, the KMT caucus greeted the premier and other officials with jeers and placards.

Yesterday marked the 270th day since Lin’s Cabinet took office. [FULL STORY]
