Shanghai, China, Jan. 17 (CNA) Two Chinese scholars who specialize in
cross-Taiwan Strait relations said Saturday that Taiwan’s President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) should clarify her stance on the “1992 consensus” and her party’s platform on Taiwan independence.
Tsai and her independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) gained an overwhelming victory in both the presidential and legislative elections Saturday, beating the Kuomintang (KMT), the ruling party of Taiwan.
It was the KMT’s Chiang Kai-shek that led the Republic of China government to relocate to Taiwan in 1949 after losing a civil war to the Communists.
In an interview with CNA after Saturday’s elections, Xin Qiang (信強), head of the Center for Taiwan Studies at Fudan University, said Chinese authorities have three major areas of concern regarding Tsai’s presidency. [FULL STORY]
