Taipei City mayor Ke Wen-je's recent comments also seemed at odds with the Central government. Speaking about the one fixed day off and one flexible rest day controversy, Ke said his stance is in line with Tainan City Mayor William Lai , urging the central government to introduce more flexibility when implemented or simply amending the law. He said he had discussed the issue with DPP Caucus Convener Ker Chien-ming, in the hope to handle this controversial issue as soon as possible. One more month to go, the 2017 Summer Universaide will start its competitions in Taipei. Mayor Ko Wen-je participated in the Social Enterprise Insights Forum Opening Ceremony. Ko exchanged with hundreds of enterprise representatives on how to create a more friendly environment and motivate the society for a positive development. When mentioning the Forward-looking Infrastructural Development Program, Ko said that it's time for President Tsai to worry on the enforcement. ==KO WEN-JE, Taipei Mayor and HOST== If I talk about the Forward-looking Program, you surely will become more anxious. Talking about the program…maybe… I think the President's Office is anxious. Also, the amendment of "one fixed day off and one flexible rest day" has provoked controversies from the public. Tainan Mayor William Lai urges the central government for a quick amendment. Mayor Ko also supports rectification to the amendment. ==KO WEN-JE Taipei City Mayor== If people think there are difficulties on enforcing the law, we should amend the law. We should not just leave the law there and do nothing. I feel that if we continue to be like this for long years, Taiwanese people's respect to the law is getting worse and worse. Mayor Ko emphasized, elected civil officials encounter similar situations with similar feelings. As to the next Taipei mayor election, if former Minister of Interior Li Hung-yuan were nominated by KMT, Li will be a potential threat to Ko's election. Mayor Ko pointed out, it's useless to worry something like that, he will do what he should do as Taipei mayor.
