Executive Yuan spokesman-designate Tung Chen-yuan (童振源) yesterday called on outgoing Premier Simon Chang (張善政) to share the mistakes and failures of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) administration over the past eight years.
“We hope Chang might share more failures and blind spots that occurred during the KMT administration so that the incoming government will not repeat its mistakes,” Tung said.
Tung said that Chang should share his mistakes because during the time he has served as vice premier and premier, Taiwan’s economy has been in recession for three consecutive quarters.
“We hope that both the governing and opposition parties can work together for Taiwan’s economic and sustainable development,” he said.
Chang on Thursday said that although he had voted for former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) in 2000, he was dissatisfied with his performance. [FULL STORY]
