Taiwan Cabinet survives a “no-confidence” vote

l  Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan (LY) voted on a no-confidence motion brought by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) against Premier Sean Chen, which failed by a 46 to 66 count.

l  It was only the second time in the last 13 years that such a vote had taken place in Taiwan’s confrontational political environment. Since the no-confidence motion has failed, opposition legislators must wait a full year before they can bring another motion against the same premier.
