panel session as part of the Judicial Reform National Conference organized by the Presidential Office.

Of the 18 members present at the session, 16 voted to pass a reform program proposed by the Judicial Yuan concerning the number of judges at the Supreme Court and the Supreme Administrative Court, and concerning how the judges will be selected and appointed.
