The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday criticized the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for using its legislative majority to go after the party’s assets, citing a KMT-commissioned poll that showed that a majority of the public disapproved with the way the government is dealing with the issue.
The telephone poll, announced by KMT Culture and Communications Committee deputy director Hung Meng-Kai (洪孟楷), was conducted on the KMT’s behalf by Taiwan Real Survey Co on Tuesday and Wednesday last week.
The poll asked whether respondents agreed or disagreed with the DPP’s use of its legislative majority to pass the Act Governing the Handling of Ill-gotten Properties by Political Parties and Their Affiliate Organizations (政黨及其附隨組織不當取得財產處理條例), adding that the act “deprived the KMT of its ability to survive” as a political institution.
