Tainan Mayor William Lai (賴清德) of the Democratic Progressive Party yesterday
repeated that he and other Tainan City Government officials would not attend the Tainan City Council’s question-and-answer session, which is set to begin today.
Instead, he and other officials would respond to councilors’ questions on paper, Lai said.
Lai has been boycotting city council meetings since January, saying that he would not attend until the resolution of corruption cases against Tainan Council Speaker Lee Chuan-chiao (李全教) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT).
Citing the Civil Servants Election and Recall Act (公職人員選舉罷免法), which stipulates that courts must conclude election-related cases within six months, Lai yesterday urged the court to rule on the case as soon as possible. [FULL STORY]
