TAIPEI, Taiwan — A meeting between four former Kuomintang (KMT) chairs and Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu on Thursday concluded with the ex-leaders pledging to help the party weather its current financial crisis.
Former chairs Lien Chan, Wu Po-hsiung, Ma Ying-jeou and Eric Chu met with Hung at central party headquarters Monday to exchange opinions over party affairs and to discuss how the party should proceed with the issue of its party assets.
The four promised to help with donations and to assist with fundraising. Access to a significant chunk of the party’s coffers has been frozen by the Cabinet’s committee targeting ill-gotten party assets. Senior party officials were also in attendance.
The KMT claims that its remaining party assets were acquired legally and that the assets freeze is preventing the party from paying its workers. [FULL STORY]
