Brawl erupts in Taiwan parliament as lawmakers attack each other with chairs

A fight erupted between ruling and opposition lawmakers in the Taiwanese parliament on Friday.

The brawl broke out when lawmakers from the Nationalists, or Kuomintang, criticized the budget proposals for the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program.

Members from the ruling and opposition parties were seen grabbing each other and throwing water bombs.

The infrastructure development plan has been treated by President Tsai Ing-wen’s administration as its key economic stimulus project.

It includes investments in light rail lines, urban and rural development and green energy.

Kuomintang or Kumite? I especially like the water bombs. I wonder if that's just part of the well-dressed Taiwanese parliamentarian's ensemble? "Jeeves, do you think these balloons clash with muay thai?"
