Premier defends LY's budget move
Premier Su Tseng-chang has blamed the opposition KMT for DPP lawmakers' forcing the 2022 general budgetary plan through the legislative assembly yesterday.
Su claims that it's the KMT's "irresponsible and irrational" behaviours that the DPP legislative caucus decided to pull the central government's budget plan out of the legislative committees and directly sent it to the Legislative Yuan (LY) assembly and passed it.
This is the first time ever that the legislative committees didn't get a chance to review the nation's budget.
In a rare consensus, the opposition KMT, TPP and NPP have all blasted the ruling party's ramming through the plan, and local news media also billed DPP's move as "an ambush."
KMT legislative head Fei Hong-tai said the DPP is becoming "autocratic and bullying," while lawmakers of the other two parties also said that the DPP's move completely deprived them of carrying out their duties.
They said it's disrespectful of them and public opinions.
