Jan. 8 (CNA) Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Friday that if elected she will invite all political parties for talks on maintaining political stability before her inauguration more than three months later.
“If I’m elected president, I will invite all political parties for talks to maintain stability in the four months (before Inauguration Day on May 20),” Tsai said.
She said she will form a team to manage the transfer of power after the election and establish a coordination mechanism with the government on major policies.
Tsai criticized Kuomintang (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) for proposing that the party with the majority in the new Legislature, which begins its session on Feb. 1, be allowed to form a new Cabinet. [FULL STORY]
