Huang steps down as minister of the Hakka Affairs Council

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Executive Yuan yesterday approved Hakka Affairs Council (HAC) Minister Huang Yu-cheng's (黃玉振) resignation. Following Huang's resignation, Liu Ching-chung (劉慶中), deputy minister of the council, will fill in as acting minister.

Huang said that he decided to resign in order to spend more time with his family, explaining that in the 2,233 days since he became minister, he never once had dinner at home.

Speaking about the worsening health condition of his wife, Huang said that he has already spent too much time working and supervising projects across the country at the expense of his family.

Huang said that he previously tendered his resignation to Premier Jiang Yi-huah (江宜樺), but that he withdrew the request in March because of the Sunflower Movement. Huang explained that under the circumstances, he was obligated to share his superior's burden amid the crisis.

Huang said that he felt grateful to President Ma Ying-jeou and the premier for approving his resignation.

Of all the ministers who served in the Ma administration, Huang has served the longest.

In 2008, the Ma administration appointed Huang as minister of the Hakka Affairs Council. Huang later survived several Cabinet reshuffles.
