Taipei, June 26 (CNA) Former Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) on Thursday said 201506260025t0001that the Taipei City government has been suffering from an exodus of employees since the incumbent mayor took office.

Since last December when Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) took over as mayor, 902 Taipei City workers have either requested early retirement, sought reassignment, or have quit, Hau wrote on his Facebook page, saying that he was greatly concerned about the situation.

Addressing similar criticisms last month, however, Ko said that 486 employees had quit between January and March this year compared with 534 last year.

Ko’s six months in office have been characterized by investigations into suspected irregularities in the award of contracts for five build-operate-transfer (BOT) projects during the tenures of two former mayors, Hau and President Ma Ying-jeou.     [FULL  STORY]
