By Sean Lin / Staff reporterPremier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) yesterday said that he was dissatisfied with progress on judicial reform and reiterated a promise to carry out President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) agenda. Su made the remarks during a question-and-answer session with New Power Party Legislator Huang Kuo-chang (黃國昌). Huang asked Su whether he was satisfied with the progress on judicial reform pledged by Tsai in her inauguration speech in 2016, to which Su answered: “No.”He asked Su what he would do to push for reform before Tsai’s term ends on May 20 next year. Su said that he would seek to devise measures to facilitate the removal of unfit judges who pass down verdicts that are out of touch with society and far from public expectations. Huang asked whether Chu, as the head of a foundation sponsored by the government, should be considered a public servant, to which Su said: “She was a public servant by a broader definition.”Su asked Huang whether a new investigation could be launched.
