Taipei, Jan. 16 (CNA) President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) said Saturday that she will leave the issue of letting the party that holds the legislative majority form a Cabinet to constitutional procedure.

Tsai made the remarks at an international press conference shortly after she claimed victory in the presidential election, in response to a media inquiry about her opinion of President Ma Ying-jeou's (馬英九) proposal to let the legislative majority form a new Cabinet.
