Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), announced Wednesday during a DPP Central Executive Committee meeting the promotion of Hung Yao-fu (洪耀福) to the position of DPP secretary-general from his previous post of deputy secretary-general.

Tsai made the announcement after she was sworn in for a new term as party chairwoman.

She said that with the DPP assuming the ruling position May 20, the party has a rapidly growing responsibility to fulfill the high hopes that people expect from the party.

The appointment of Hung, 49, as DPP secretary-general signifies that the DPP’s middle-aged generation is ready to move up into leadership positions, Tsai said, while praising Hung’s excellent organizational skills and rich experience in local election campaigns.

Former DPP Legislator Lee Chun-yi (李俊毅), former DPP spokesman Hsu Chia-ching (徐佳青) and former director of the DPP Secretariat Kao Shing-hsueh (高幸雪) were also appointed as deputy secretaries-general of the party, according to a party spokesman.      [SOURCE]
