Premier Jiang to quit if nuclear plant halted

By Shih Hsiu-chuan  /  Staff reporter

In response to comments by KMT Legislator Yang Chiung-ying (楊瓊瓔), Jiang said he would step down to take political responsibility if the government lost in the referendum.

He said that if construction of the plant is halted, it could lead to bankruptcy for state-owned Taiwan Power Co (Taipower, 台電) and other problems, such as power shortages.

“As the premier, I am responsible for that. I will resign,” he said.
