Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) officials yesterday said three of the seven grand justice nominees should
be disqualified since they do not identify with the Republic of China (ROC) and the Constitution, and urged President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to withdraw their nominations or demand that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus block them because the KMT would oppose their nominations all the way.
At a news conference, the KMT specifically named National Chiayi University professor Hsu Chih-hsiung (許志雄), and National Taiwan University professors Hsu Tzong-li (許宗力) and Hwang Jau-yuan (黃昭元) as unsuitable and said that they should “take a hike.”
KMT Culture and Communications Commission deputy director Hu Wen-chi (胡文琦) said Hsu Chih-hsiung is “the worst of the lot,” because he had said Taiwan is not a normal country and that the ROC is an abandoned name which should be retired, as it was left over from the Chinese Civil War.
“How can such a person, who does not identify with the ROC, be tasked with interpreting the ROC Constitution? You cannot have it both ways. If he thinks he can get away with it, then it is hypocritical and very shameful. If he is a real man, then he should know better and go take a hike, as the Pacific Ocean is wide open, if he would like to do so.” [FULL STORY]
