Premier Simon Chang (張善政) said that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration that is to take office on Friday next week should not make people feel “that it came back to seek revenge,” a remark which the DPP said showed how much the nation needs a change of administration.
In an interview published yesterday in the Chinese-language China Times, Chang asked the incoming government to concentrate on boosting the economy and industrial development in its first two years in power.
“Completing transitional justice and curriculum guidelines while letting the economy and industries continue to falter would make the public feel that the government is seeking revenge,” he was quoted as saying.
The premier said that such policy initiatives “are not productive,” and the government should make enhancing productivity its priority and suspend its ideological agenda. [FULL STORY]
