Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmakers yesterday urged President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) to
place himself on the national departure watch list governed by the Classified National Security Information Protection Act (國家機密保護法) as promised, and called on the outgoing president to account for his broken promises.
At a news conference at the legislature, DPP Legislator Wang Ting-yu (王定宇) presented a list of 55 promises on which he said Ma has reneged since 2008, notably his “6-3-3” pledge from the 2008 presidential campaign and his promise to donate half of his salary should the “6-3-3” vow fail.
The “6-3-3” pledge refers to the goals of achieving annual GDP growth of 6 percent, annual per capita income of US$30,000 and an unemployment rate of less than 3 percent.
“With only three days left before Ma leaves office, it is time to lay out his final tally. We tried to include all of Ma’s ‘bounced checks,’ but there are simply too many, so we only listed 55 of them,” Wang said. [FULL STORY]
