William Lai, President Tsai Ing-wen's pick for premier, is set to address the Legislature on Monday.
Lawmakers hope Lai will explain the Cabinet's position on several pieces of legislation as it undergoes a reshuffle.
The opposition KMT caucus says it will ask about revising regulations about the workweek. The People's First Party says it hopes to use Lai's visit to understand the direction his leadership will take and to learn his views on past disputes between ruling and opposition parties. The New Power Party says it will ask Lai about his position on legislation ranging from an amendment to the Referendum Act to a law governing refugees.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Lai held a press conference in the southern city of Tainan, where he serves as mayor. He announced that Lee Meng-yen, the city government's secretary-general, will serve as acting mayor for the next year.
