Lien Chan offers to help resolve Ma-Wang dispute

Hung said a computer drawing lots with senior judges monitoring the process was in accordance with the Judges’ Act (法官法).

The KMT’s attorneys on Monday filed an appeal with the High Court against the ruling handed down on Friday by the Taipei District Court in favor of Wang.

Wang last week requested an injunction from the Taipei District Court against the KMT’s decision to revoke his party membership, over his alleged role in attempting to influence a prosecutor in a legal case involving Democratic Progressive Party caucus whip Ker Chien-ming (柯建銘).

The district court ruled that Wang may keep his rights as a KMT member until a final ruling, on condition that he pays NT$9.38 million (US$315,000) as a collateral deposit.

The court’s ruling took effect on Saturday after it had been delivered to the KMT, the Central Election Commission and the legislature.
