KMT policy conference set for March 2

KMT policy conference set for March 2

The 7th session of the 8th Legislative Yuan is scheduled to open February 24, and the KMT Party Policy Committee will hold a seminar March 2 to discuss operational procedures of the Executive and Legislative branches. This will be the first meeting on operational procedures since Eric Chu took over as KMT Chairman, and President and former KMT Chairman Ma Ying-jeou will also be in attendance at the seminar, which is designed to build a consensus within the party on government operations.

KMT policy executive director Lai Shyh-bao told reporters Sunday that the Executive Yuan will raise several priority issues during the conference. In addition, KMT Legislators will offer suggestions on future directions in party policy. Chairman Chu has also issued a statement designed to help promote unity in the party and gather momentum for planned events.

Chu notes that the Executive Yuan and Legislative Yuan must cooperate with each other, with the Legislative Yuan putting together major bills that will be favorable to the people's livelihood while the Executive Yuan promotes policies that focus on communication, the new era and "the party and government communication platform." The two institutions will both play key roles in determining future directions, something they have not often done in the past, and senior Executive Yuan officials will be required to attend party meetings to discuss platforms and major bills in the Legislative Yuan.

President Ma Ying-jeou will attend the seminar on operational procedures at the invitation of the CPC Central Committee, and will appear on the same stage as Chairman Chu on March 2. Lai Shyh-bao noted that it has not yet been determined whether President Ma will deliver a speech as part of the seminar.
