TAIPEI, Taiwan — Former President Lee Teng-hui, widely considered a mentor to President Tsai Ing-wen, said in an interview that his protege lacked “decisiveness and courage.”

In an interview with the Japanese daily Sankei Shimbun, Lee criticized Tsai over her results from the last six months, saying she lacked “decisiveness” and “courage” when carrying out domestic reform.

Lee was downbeat on the administration’s future, saying that Tsai’s approval ratings — which have dipped from 50 percent at the time of her inauguration in May to 35 percent in recent polls — would likely continue to fall.

Describing the “very high” expectations he had held for Tsai, the ex-president said the administration’s recent performance was “seriously disappointing.”    [FULL  STORY]
