However, KMT Legislator Chen Ken-te (陳根德) said Control Yuan members had acted against public opinion to keep their own jobs.

“Even if they were to be nominated again for Control Yuan membership, their nominations would require our [the legislature’s] seal of approval. Do they really think they will have our support after we find out they have voted against the motion?” Chen said.

Huang refused to comment on the results of yesterday’s vote, as did the SID and Wang.

Comments will be moderated. Keep comments relevant to the article. Remarks containing abusive and obscene language, personal attacks of any kind or promotion will be removed and the user banned. Final decision will be at the discretion of the Taipei Times.
