Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) yesterday said that
former vice president Lien Chan’s (連戰) attendance at a Chinese military parade would be referred to the party’s disciplinary committee “for discussion.”
Responding to some KMT members’ call for disciplinary actions against Lien, who attended the military parade marking the end of World War II in Beijing on Thursday against the party’s wishes, Chu reiterated that the party was committed to upholding the truth about the Republic of China government’s role in the war and had instructed party officials not to attend the parade.
“As for some [retired] senior party officials and individual party members [who attended the parade], there are differing opinions within the party [about the issue]. Since the KMT is a democratic party, we will, in line with these opinions, have their cases referred to relevant units, such as the party’s Evaluation and Discipline Committee or the Central Standing Committee, for discussion,” Chu said.
