Series’ cancelation highly suspect

After broadcasting just two of 35 planned episodes, Tzu Chi Culture and Communication Foundation’s subsidiary Da Ai TV pulled its historical drama Jiachang’s Heart (智子之心) off the air, reportedly because Beijing was displeased with the show, saying it was kissing up to Japan.

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairman Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) is set to announce the party’s plan to initiate a no-confidence motion today against what it described as Presdient Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) administration’s destruction of the Constitution and political destabilization.

Su plans to skip the Double Ten National Day ceremony and to make the announcement at a press conference titled: “Action for democracy. No-confidence motion for the people,” DPP spokesperson Lin Chun-hsien (林俊憲) said after the party’s weekly Central Standing Committee meeting yesterday.
