KMT Legislator Lai Shyh-bao said the decision to hold a special session at the Legislative



Yuan regarding the curriculum guideline controversy will be confirmed during the Kuomintang’s national assembly on Tuesday, reports said Monday.

“The final decision has yet to be confirmed during the national assembly tomorrow,” Lai said, adding that the final call would depend on the majority of the votes rather than the party’s one-sided opinion.

Lai pointed out that many legislators believe the curriculum issue taken by the Ministry of Education (MOE) is an administrative action rather than a legislative one, and so it is not up to them to counter the ministry’s right of power.

Although there has never been such a motion reviewed by the legislature before, he however said the decision to carry out the special session will depend largely on the voices of each legislator at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.     [FULL  STORY]
