TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Legislative Speaker Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) has confirmed he will attend Taiwan’s presidential inauguration ceremony on May 20 to perform the ceremonial roles required of him by law.

His attendance was confirmed by his representatives at the legislature on Monday (May 13). Taiwan’s legislative speaker confers multiple official seals upon the president and vice president at their inauguration as required by law.

Under the Official Seals Act, He will confer the Seal of the Republic of China, the Seal of the President, the Permanent Organization Seal of the President, and the Seal of Honor upon President-elect Lai Ching-te (賴清德) at the inauguration. He will also confer the Seal of the Vice President upon Vice President-elect Hsiao Bi-khim (蕭美琴).

According to the seals act, the Seal of the Republic of China is affixed to diplomatic documents issued by the president, and the Seal of Honor is affixed to letters of commendation issued by the president. The act also outlines that as a national seal, the Seal of the President is to be made of jade, while the other seals conferred by Han are to be made of silver.

The news of Han’s attendance came as many of his Kuomintang (KMT) colleagues said they wouldn’t attend the inauguration at the Presidential Office in Taipei, including Taipei City Mayor Chiang Wan-an (蔣萬安).
