(China Post) After his comments supporting Taiwan independence, Premier William Lai urged lawmakers to no longer question is personal stance on the issue. He agrees that he should not have expressed his personal opinion on independence given his position as premier, but that it would have been disrespectful to ignore the lawmakers' questions. Further, Lai noted that what he expressed was also the opinion of a majority of Taiwanese people.
