Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Central Policy Committee director Alex Tsai (蔡正元) yesterday denied a media report that the KMT has split into “pro-war” and “pro-peace” factions on the party assets issue, with Tsai leading the former.

“The [Chinese-language] Apple Daily’s report that the KMT headquarters have seen in-party conflicts and split into a so-called ‘pro-peace’ faction headed by [KMT Vice Chairman] Steve Chan (詹啟賢) and a ‘pro-war’ faction led by myself is utter fabrication,” Tsai, who also serves as party spokesman, said on Facebook.

Tsai said since he assumed the post as director of the KMT’s Central Policy Committee in April, he has never played a part in the KMT headquarters’ policymaking on party assets.

The reason is simple, because party assets is never part of the Central Policy Committee’s remit, Tsai said.    [FULL  STORY]
