Legislature rejects notification of Chunghwa Post change of name

Legislature rejects  notification of Chunghwa Post change of name

The Legislative Yuan rejected notification from Taiwan Post Co. yesterday of its action in February to change the name of the state-owned company from Chunghwa Post.
Lawmakers of the opposition Kuomintang and the People First Party controlled the voting in the meeting of the legislative committee of transportation on a proposal by KMT Legislator Tsao Erh-chung (曹爾忠) to discard the notice and advise the Executive Yuan to disallow the name change before the law regulating postal operations is revised.
The "pan-blue" legislators opposed the Taiwan Post action, which they claimed to be unlawful, and accused the company of deliberately ignoring the legislative system. They argued that the corporation, which was transformed from the government agency of the Directorate General of Posts in 2003, is named Chunghwa Post in the existing regulations stipulating the company's establishment.
