Lin said the KMT hoped the bills that were scheduled to be dealt with this week would not be delayed by the service trade pact issue.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus whip Ker Chien-ming (柯建銘) asked President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) to step forward to address the public’s concerns.

Ker said the DPP would otherwise boycott a review of the agreement and demanded that the agreement be overruled and that Taiwan restart negotiations with China over the opening up of the service sector.
