The Cabinet, led by Premier William Lai, is set to resign en masse on Friday.

Lai made the announcement on Thursday night after the legislature passed the fiscal budget for 2019. Lai thanked President Tsai Ing-wen, Legislature President Su Jia-chyuan, and lawmakers from across the political spectrum for approving the budget.

Reports say that former Premier Su Tseng-chang is a likely replacement for Lai.
