Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang will not postpone the National Congress scheduled for July
19 but will keep the event simple and solemn, KMT secretary-general Lee Shih-chuan said Saturday.
Lee was responding to a proposal by KMT legislator Lee Ching-hua that the party put off the National Congress in the wake of the tragic fire at a New Taipei water park on June 27 that left two dead and over 400 injured.
According to Lee Shih-chuan, the National Congress is coming very soon, and all party representatives will attend.
Because some party representatives living overseas have taken leave of absence and booked their flight tickets, it would be difficult to change the date of the National Congress now, he said. [FULL STORY]
