The deputies taiwanese are known to begin sometimes physically in the debates, and the fights have especially taken over the past two weeks around the appointment of the future head of the agency responsible for control of the various organs of the government.

We could see a member of the democratic progressive Party (DPP), the ruling send a punch to a colleague of the Kuomintang (KMT, opposition).

And a little later, members of the KMT have begun to attack those of the DPP to kick water bombs, forcing them to protect themselves with impermeable plastic and large cardboard panels.
