Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Acting Chairperson Huang Min-hui (黃敏惠)
yesterday urged president-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) not to let her pledges to push for transitional justice descend into “cheesy political slogans,” in her latest round of barbs aimed at the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) legislative proposals.
“Tsai promised modesty after she won last month’s presidential election. However, the DPP caucus has tabled a series of controversial proposals, such as those concerning the removal of portraits of Republic of China [ROC] founding father Sun Yat-sen (孫逸仙) from public buildings and ‘ill-gotten’ party assets,” Huang said.
Huang said Tsai has listed transitional justice as one of her five major political reform plans and vowed to cement momentum for reform via collaboration.
“What exactly do you [Tsai] plan to transition to, justice or hatred?” Huang asked, urging the DPP chairperson to explain herself. [FULL STORY]
