TAIPEI, Taiwan — Opposition Kuomintang (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu and her delegation visited the mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen Monday in Nanjing, where she spoke of the Republic of China while paying respects to the nation’s founding father.
After paying her respects, Hung gave brief remarks at the adjoining Boai Square, where she recalled Sun’s trials and eventual success in “overthrowing the Qing Dynasty in order to found the Republic of China.”
“As a senior member of the KMT leading a delegation of its leaders, I feel embarrassed that we have failed Dr. Sun,” she said after viewing Sun’s coffin and placing a wreath at the memorial, referring to the party’s electoral setback in 2016 that placed the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) firmly in power in Taiwan.
