KMT not to appeal

Taiwan’s top legislator membership ruling

 

By Chen Siwu

 

The ruling Kuomintang (KMT) in Taiwan said on Wednesday of February 25 it will drop its legal action against head of the legislative body Wang Jin-pyng over his party membership, ending 17 months of controversy.

Speaking at the party’s Central Standing Committee meeting, KMT chair Eric Chu said the party has revised its regulations to bring it in line with the court ruling, so it is unnecessary to continue with the lawsuit.

Chu said Wang’s KMT membership was confirmed “without any doubt”.

Wang was stripped of KMT membership in September 2013 by the party’s disciplinary committee over allegations of illegal lobbying. Wang then moved for a court injunction to prevent his ejection from the party.

The court ruled that Wang could keep his membership until a final ruling on condition that he pay 9.38 million New Taiwan Dollars (about 315,000 U.S. dollars) as a collateral deposit.

Withdrawal of party membership would have cost Wang his seat as a KMT legislator-at-large and his position as head of the legislative body, which he has held since 1999.

Two courts ruled in favor of Wang, but the KMT filed an appeal in the name of its former chairman Ma Ying-jeou. It will not now be dealt with by the court because Chu, who took over the KMT chair in January has decided not to pursue the action in a bid to stop internal disputes.

Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou said he was disappointed at the party’ s announcement and did not think it was the right decision.

Infectious diarrhea in Taiwan

sends 34,000 people to hospitals

By Chen Siwu

 

About 34,000 people sought hospital treatment in Taiwan during the holiday week due to infectious diarrhea, the health authority said on Wednesday of February 25.

It was the highest number of cases in four years and 10 percent higher than the same period of last year, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

CDC deputy chief Chuang Jen-hsiang attributed the rise to more frequent dining-out during the holiday, warning of a rising threat o until March 1 as more people traveling will help transmit the disease.

The CDC is continuing to monitor an outbreak of norovirus in a central Taiwan tourist spot known for its cherry blossoms, where about 120 tourists were reported infected during the holiday.

    that you two could therefore then never share your life together.

    You need to develop an intuition of when will be the right time for you
    to give him a bit leeway. You can write to the ladies you want to date with and
    when they get enthusiastic about you, there starts an intimate online
    dating.
