Chen's son, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) city councilor for Kaohsiung Chen Chih-chung (陳致中), recently stirred up controversy after carrying Taiwan's Independence flag to the main peak of Yushan, which has an elevation of 3,952 meters above sea level. This prompted Kuomintang (KMT) legislator Lee Ming-hsien (李明賢) to state that politics should not be brought into national parks, and he has reported the move to the administrative office of Yushan.
