Vice President Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) yesterday dismissed media speculation that she would "make a dramatic move" on the Democratic Progressive Party's (DPP) 20th anniversary on Sept. 28. "It is unfeasible that the vice president would say, nor has she ever said, that she would make any `dramatic move,'" the Presidential Office said in a statement. "Instead, she has repeatedly called on ruling and opposition parties to concertedly safeguard the constitutional system and the rule of law." No one can make any comment on behalf of the vice president without her consent, the statement said, adding that those spreading false or malicious remarks should be responsible for their own words and actions. The statement was made in response to an article in the United Daily News yesterday that quoted TV political commentator Chen Li-hung (陳立宏) as saying Lu would "make a dramatic move" on the DPP's 20th anniversary and that he suspected her "dramatic move" would be to resign. Political commentator Chen Hui-wen (陳揮文) said that as far as he knew, Lu's "dramatic move" would be to withdraw from the DPP.
