Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), responding
to veteran political activist Lin I-hsiung’s (林義雄) remarks targeting the party on Friday, yesterday said that the idea of maintaining the “status quo” does not contradict the Resolution on Taiwan’s Future in the DPP charter.
Lin said that Tsai’s “maintaining the ‘status quo’” is a mystery to him, asking whether it is so hard to follow the DPP’s charter on this issue.
In response, Tsai said that the basic idea of “maintaining the ‘status quo’” is calling for open, transparent and fairer dealings in cross-strait affairs and public participation in policies, which are “not inconsistent” with the resolution. [FULL STORY]
