Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislators Lai Shyh-bao (賴士葆), Alex Fai (費鴻泰) and William Tseng (曾銘宗) yesterday continued their hunger strike in protest Gove against what they said was the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) “autocratic” handling of the motions tendered by opposition lawmakers for the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program.
The lawmakers started their hunger strike at 8pm on Tuesday after Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全), a DPP member, announced that there would be no voting on the same issue twice. [FULL STORY]
