The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday vowed to safeguard the rights and interests of its staff after its first forum to communicate with employees about cuts and restructuring plans, which it said went “smoothly and peacefully.”
Speaking at a news conference in Taipei yesterday afternoon, KMT Culture and Communications Committee deputy director Hu Wen-chi (胡文琦) said KMT Secretary-General Mo Tien-hu (莫天虎) and KMT Administration and Management Committee director Chiu Da-chan (邱大展) briefed employees on planned personnel reforms.
“They also provided an unequivocal account of the party’s current financial situation, while reassuring KMT staff that the party is not stashing any money,” Hu said, adding it denied allegations that NT$94 million (US$2.96 million) the party withdrew from KMT-affiliated Mingsheng Foundation bank accounts earlier this month was meant for personal use.” [FULL STORY]
