TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen said
Tuesday she would personally lead judicial reform efforts if she were elected president next January.
The opposition leader has been far ahead of her challengers in nearly all recent opinion polls for the January 16 presidential and legislative elections.
She told a delegation from four judicial associations visiting her Tuesday that since the judicial system could not reform itself automatically, it should be led by the president himself in order to book significant results.
Tsai and her top legal advisers participated in a one-hour open-door meeting with the judicial reform activists and attorneys to hear their demands and grievances about the present system. [FULL STORY]
