Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) vice presidential candidate Jennifer Wang (王如
玄) yesterday said that she would make public a list of assets and properties owned by her and her husband today, in an apparent attempt to assuage controversy over military housing units.
“All of the assets currently or previously registered under my or my husband’s name since the 2004 implementation of the sunshine laws are to be laid out for public scrutiny,” Wang said during a visit to the National Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall to pay homage to Republic of China (ROC) founding father Sun Yat-sen (孫中山).
Wang said she has never lied about the issue and that the list would back her claims.
Wang made the remarks amid accusations by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Tuan Yi-kang (段宜康) that the former Council of Labor Affairs minister has profited handsomely from speculative purchases of housing units transformed from old quarters for military dependents.
