Speaking at a news conference in Taipei, KMT caucus secretary-general Lee Yen-hsiu (李彥秀) said that the elementary school was also set to hold a graduation ceremony on Friday, but was resigned to having to call a day off to accommodate a security detail for Tsai’s attendance at the graduation ceremony of the academies at the nearby Fuxinggang military base.
