President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday neither confirmed
nor denied speculation that former minister of finance Lin Chuan (林全) might be appointed premier after she assumes office in May.
The speculation again caught media attention after Tsai appointed Lin, along with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Secretary-General Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) and former DPP secretary-general Lin Hsi-yao (林錫耀), a co-convener of her transition team to handle the transfer of power from the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九).
Tsai also said on Tuesday that Lin Chuan might not continue to serve as executive director of the New Frontier Foundation.
