  • Su Tseng-chang appointed as Taiwan PM

    Published on January 11, 2019

    Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has appointed Su Tseng-chang as Prime Minister on Thursday, during a Cabinet reshuffle following the ruling Democratic Progressive Party’s heavy losses in local elections.

    Su is a former premier appointed in 2006 by then-President Chen Shui-bian and was a chairman of Tsai’s Democratic Progressive Party for two terms.

    His appointment follows the widely-expected resignation of William Lai, the second premier to quit since Tsai took office in 2016.
