Taipei, Jan. 5 (CNA) Three opposition parties — the People First Party (PFP), the
Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) and the New Power Party (NPP) — voiced support Saturday for President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文)’s stance against the “one country, two systems” formula devised by China.
The PFP said the “one county, two systems” formula is not acceptable to the people of Taiwan as it will leave no room for Taiwan to maintain the status quo.
In their statements, the TSU and the NPP called for unity among the people of Taiwan against the pressure imposed by China.
The statements by the three parties followed a call by Tsai earlier in the day for all political parties in Taiwan to reject the “one country, two systems” formula and thus send a clear message to China, based on the wishes of the Taiwan people.
