Taipei, March 29 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou （馬英九） will “absolutely not shirk

Charles Chen （陳以信）said Ma, a former mayor of Taipei City, had delegated some decision making power to his deputies in regard to the on-going controversy over the BOT project in which the city government was suspected of having made too huge a concession to partner Radium Life Tech Co. （日勝生）in building a mass rapid transit trains maintenance center in suburban Taipei.
