The number of Taiwanese opposed the “one country, two systems” framework proposed
by Beijing as a solution to cross-strait relations continues to grow, according to a latest survey commissioned by the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC).
The opinion poll conducted on May 10-12 indicates that 83.6 percent of respondents oppose the “one country, two systems” proposal, which sees Taiwan as a local government and special administrative region of China. The figure was 79 percent in a similar survey in March.
Only 5.6 percent of respondents supported the formula and another 10.9 percent were undecided.
The survey, which was conducted using telephone interviews, had an effective sample size of 1,088 Taiwanese citizens above 20 years of age and a confidence level of 95 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.97 percentage points. [FULL STORY]
