Deputy environmental protection minister announces resignation

Taipei, Deputy Minister of Environmental Protection Chan Shun-kuei (???) issued a statement Monday announcing his resignation.

Chan posted a statement on his Facebook page in which he indicated he submitted his resignation to the Executive Yuan on Sept. 13, after his superior Lee Ying-yuan (???) declined to accept it.

Despite the lack of confirmation, 54 year-old Chan said he remains determined to follow through on his decision to resign.

In the statement, the lawyer-turned governmental official thanked President Tsai Ing-wen (???) and former Premier Lin Chuan (??) for supporting him. He also pledged to work for the implementation of energy transformation policies on returning to the private sector.
