Taipei, July 3 (CNA) Kuomintang legislative caucus convener Lin Te-fu (林德福) on Monday led a protest against efforts by the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to force through the third reading of a set of special provisions for the forward-looking infrastructure development program, which will lay the groundwork for a budget to be passed for the program’s implementation.
The KMT caucus wants the program to be returned to the Executive Yuan and re-written, Lin said, with the government’s “forward-looking infrastructure development plan” set to enter its final legislative process this week.
Unhappy with the DPP decision to force through the special budget by ordering its lawmakers to attend the legislatures’ extraordinary meetings this week, the KMT protested in front of the Legislative Yuan building. [FULL STORY]
