“Solving problems and doing things is the primary purpose of [this] Cabinet,” Premier-designate Lin Chuan shrugged off a question that the new Cabinet lineup is “not eye-opening” after his announcement of more government members Wednesday.
The Cabinet lineup has mostly been completed after Lin presented his fourth list of appointments Wednesday.

Lin said he was not so concerned about the question of whether the lineup is eye-opening or not because he had only paid attention to whether they can solve problems. There is no honeymoon, and “[I] hope they can get the hang of it on May 20, the day of the takeover,” Lin added. [FULL STORY]
