A new Cabinet has taken office, headed by Premier William Lai.
A swearing-in ceremony Friday morning ended a reshuffle that began Monday, when former premier Lin Chuan tendered his resignation. Much of the Cabinet followed Lin’s lead in a mass resignation Thursday.
After a separate handover ceremony in which Lai took over the premiership, the new Cabinet held its first meeting. The Cabinet has decided to reopen discussions on several budgetary matters, including next year’s general budget. [FULL STORY]
