No plan to roster change in the cabinet: Premier

There are no plans for a cabinet reshuffle. That’s the word from Premier Lin Chuan on Friday.

China Time Weekly, a local newspaper, reported that the Democratic Progressive Party majority cabinet is facing pressure from the opposition Kuomintang.

The article also claimed the premier might stand down by the end of the year. It drew a connection to the recent resignation the head of Financial Supervisory Commission head, Ding Kung-wha. Ding resigned to take responsibility for the government’s handling of a money-laundering scandal involving Mega Bank.

Lin said at the Legislature on Friday that there are no plans for a reshuffle, nor does he anticipate leaving his position.
