Former presidential office advisor says 1-party dominance threatens Taiwan’s democracy

Last Saturday (June 6), Han suffered a devastating defeat in the vote to remove him from Kaohsiung City Hall, making him the first municipality leader in Taiwan's history to be recalled. Meanwhile, a recent poll conducted by the independence-leaning Taiwan Brain Trust also indicated that support for the KMT has dropped to a historic low of 9.2 percent.
During a press conference organized by the Taiwan New Constitution Foundation (TNC) on Thursday (June 11), Koo said he is personally opposed to the idea of a one-party system. He pointed out that Taiwan should have at least two legitimate parties to determine its future and that one-party rule would not be beneficial to the island nation's development.
