Commission spokesperson Yu Hsiao-cheng (虞孝成) said the commission was still investigating the issue and its members had not yet discussed Want Want China Times’ application.

Huang Chin-yi (黃金益), director of the commission’s communication management department, said the group submitted its application on Dec. 16 and that under the Administrative Procedure Act (行政程序法), a ruling must be given within two months of receipt of an application.
