The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday acknowledged that streamlining its structure is
inevitable, but downplayed allegations that it is planning to dismiss half of its employees.
KMT Secretary-General Mo Tien-hu (莫天虎) said that party members at central and local levels, as well as the party’s union, have been preparing themselves since the KMT national congress on Sept. 4 passed a resolution to push for the streamlining of the party’s structure and salary adjustments.
“Our plans are to be unveiled after they are approved at a meeting of the KMT Central Standing Committee,” Mo said.
However, when asked to confirm the KMT leadership’s reported plan to lay off 400 workers, Mo said that while there had been speculation of layoffs of at least half of the KMT’s 800 employees, the number is mere speculation, as such a figure has never been mentioned. [FULL STORY]
