Wang suggests constitutional amendments in two years

Wang Jin-pyng (王金平), speaker of the Legislative Yuan, yesterday expressed his support for an eventual amendment to the constitution regarding the legislature. He suggested that the current system should first be explored more thoroughly to see what its defects may be, and then to consider raising the number of seats and choosing a parliamentary system over the currently confusing semi-duel-head system.

The remarks did not contradict Ma Ying-jeou's statement that the KMT would not amend the constitution in the short term, but did starkly contrast in tone.
