Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) yesterday apologized to the public for the government's late announcement regarding the five-day holiday which begins on Friday. Su made the apology on the legislative floor when fielding question from lawmakers. Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Lee Ching-hua (李慶華) complained about the late announcement and said it had inconvenienced many people as some may need to reschedule their holidays while others may have trouble returning or exchanging travel tickets. Since Oct. 14 has been assigned as a working day to make up for Oct. 9 which the government named as a holiday, Lee said couples who originally planned to hold their weddings on Oct.14 may have to reschedule as many people might not be able to attend because of work. "I am deeply sorry for the disturbance," Su said, adding that the government will try to avoid the same thing from happening again.
