The Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) controversial party asset issue has revealed to
the nation both the incompetency of KMT Chairperson Eric Chu (朱立倫) and his complicity in the party’s opaque handling of the issue, which warrants a public apology, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) said yesterday.
The DPP cited a poll by the Zero KMT and Taiwan Association of University Professors (TAUP), which found that 58 percent of respondents were dissatisfied with how Chu was handling the issue.
The poll showed that 66.9 percent of respondents were supportive of passing the draft political party act and draft regulations on processing inappropriate party assets, DPP spokesperson Huang Ti-ying (黃帝潁) said.
The claimed amount of party assets by the party, totaling 229, contrasted greatly with the Ministry of Finance’s claimed thousands of items, Huang said. [FULL STORY]
