Leaders of Irrigation Associations Will Be Appointed by Government

The Legislative Yuan passed an amendment to the Act of Irrigation Association Organization, which will convert the associations into government agencies.

According to the amendment, the elections of association directors and chairmen will be abolished. All of the directors and chairmen of the associations will serve their terms until Sep. 30, 2020. From then, the chairmen of all irrigation associations will be appointed by the Council of Agriculture rather by elections.
