Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Acting chairperson Huang Min-
hui (黃敏惠) yesterday said the party would continue to reflect upon its defeats and solicit opinions from all sides, after the party’s recent report reviewing its disastrous electoral performance drew criticism.
“The KMT once suffered a severe setback in the past and now it has sustained new blows. We must translate talk of reform into action,” Huang said in response to media queries on the sidelines of a memorial service for shipping giant Evergreen Group founder Chang Yung-fa (張榮發) in Taipei yesterday morning.
Huang said she was aware of negative comments on the KMT’s report on its performance in the Jan. 16 elections, released on Wednesday, which has been described as being riddled with cliches and opinions from “people sitting in the office,” rather than actual candidates competing in the races.
“I promise I will continue to engage in self-reflection and to discuss the issue with supporters and grassroots party members. I will work to gather relevant information relentlessly, step-by-step,” Huang said. [FULL STORY]
