TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Communication between Taiwan and China will continue
next year despite the long period between the presidential election and the inauguration, said Democratic Progressive Party candidate Tsai Ing-wen.
The opposition leader, who is likely to win the election according to most polls held over the past months, was referring to the period between the presidential and legislative elections on January 16 and the official swearing-in on May 20.
There will be no empty period as far as cross-straits issues and relations between Taiwan and China are concerned, Tsai said in a media interview held Thursday evening. Her comments were interpreted as a sign that the DPP was willing to talk to leading figures in China following the election. [FULL STORY]
