Independent Tainan City Councilor Chen Chao Lai (陳朝來), left, clashes with Democratic Progressive Party councilors at a meeting of the Tainan City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 18. Chen was protesting Council Speaker Lai Mei-hui (賴美惠) of the DPP for ending the meeting early. Chen and several Kuomintang councilors were filibustering to block Tainan Mayor William Lai from delivering his policy report at the meeting when the speaker ended the meeting and announced that the mayor would give his policy report in written form.
