Taipei, June 9 (CNA) The director of the Health Promotion Administration (HPA) under the Ministry of Health and Welfare will be transferred June 14 to the ministry’s Taoyuan General Hospital as a top-tier physician, a ministry spokesman said Thursday.
The vacancy left by Chiu Shu-ti will be filled temporarily by her deputy, Chen Ran-chou, until a suitable replacement can be found, according to Wang Chen-chao.

Wang made the announcement after Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Tuan Yi-kang accused Chiu early this month of “not knowing her place” and called her “thick-skinned” for returning to her job at the HPA after losing a local election bid.

Chiu was head of the Taipei City’s Department of Health when Ma Ying-jeou was mayor and worked for Ma’s first presidential campaign in 2007-2008.     [FULL  STORY]
