Taiwan Academic Liu Chao-shiuan Named Premier

From AFP:

Taiwan’s incoming President Ma Ying-jeou said Monday he had chosen Liu Chao-shiuan, an academic and a former vice premier, to serve as prime minister in his new government.

Liu, 64, was deputy to then premier Vincent Siew — and now the island’s vice president-elect — from 1997 to 2000. He is currently president of the private Soochow University in Taipei.

“Vice president-elect and I have reached consensus to invite Liu Chao-shiuan to serve as premier and Chiang Pin-kung as chairman of the semi-official Strait Exchange Foundation,” said president-elect Ma of the Kuomintang (), which trounced the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in March polls.
