Taiwanese lawmakers scuffle over Presidential appointment

Lawmakers from Taiwan's ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) scuffle with lawmakers from the main opposition Kuomintang (KMT) party, who have been occupying the Legislature Yuan, in Taipei, Taiwan, Monday. Members of the Kuomintang protested the nomination of President Tsai Ing-wen’s senior aide as head of Control Yuan, which exercises the powers of impeachment, censure, and audit.
