The opposition Kuomintang’s (KMT) legislative caucus on Tuesday held a press conference to release the party’s version of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Government’s proposed “Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Plan.”
The KMT’s rewrite comes ahead of a public hearing proposed plan that has been scheduled for Thursday. The draft of the plan is set to be reviewed by six different legislative committees.
To emphasize the changes to the original, the KMT went as far as to criticize the ruling party in the name of the presser on Tuesday, calling the DPP government out for proposing an eight-year plan when President Tsai Ing-wen’s term as the nation’s leader was only four years.
KMT Legislator Alicia Wang (王育敏) said that since it is unclear if Tsai would be able to get re-elected, the DPP and the president should not have proposed an eight-year plan which could infringe on the rights of the next president. [FULL STORY]
