Newly re-elected Ma Ying-jeou of Taiwan has appointed a new prime minister. The previous PM, Wu Den-yih, was elected as Vice-President on President Ma’s ticket.
The new PM is Sean Chen, a financial expert. Taipei Times provides some details about the new cabinet.
The election of VP Wu required the appointment of a new PM. Moreover, the new session of the Legislative Yuan is about to start very soon. However, because the date of the presidential election was brought forward to allow concurrent presidential and legislative elections last month, President Ma’s second term does not formally begin until May.
