Minister of Transportation and Communications Kuo Yao-chi (郭瑤琪) said she doesn't plan to seek higher office and has no desire to stay if she is told to leave. "Ever since I was a low-ranking civil servant, a supervisor has never had to ask me to stay on, and there is no need for me to ask any favor from anybody [to keep my job]," Kuo said. Her comments follow media reports that Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) might replace her for failing to take immediate action either before or after the Taiwan Higher Administrative Court outlawed the China Aviation Development Council's investment in the Taiwan High Speed Railway. The reports said Vice Premier Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) had talked Su out of sacking Kuo. Tsai has denied the report, saying that Su simply encouraged Kuo to press on.
