Su Chen-chang (蘇貞昌) resigns

Taiwanese Prime Minister Su Tseng-chang has resigned, less than a week after losing his party's primary for the 2008 presidential election.

Mr Su said he had resigned to allow President Chen Shui-ban to "strategise in the new environment" during his final year in office.

Mr Su was defeated in the Democratic People's Party election by Frank Hsieh, whom he succeeded as premier in 2006.

The president has said will announce Mr Su's successor later on Saturday.
