Was restarting reactor a last resort?

Opponents of nuclear energy are sure to be dismayed that the Atomic Energy Council on Monday approved the restart of the No. 2 reactor at the Guosheng Nuclear Power Plant in New Taipei City’s Wanli District (萬里).

Technically, there is nothing wrong with the decision, as the reactor’s license runs until 2023 and there are still a few years to go before the government’s pledge to completely phase out nuclear energy by 2025.


Justice demands data preservation

As Taiwan marked the 71st anniversary of the 228 Incident last week, transitional justice once again became a topic of heated discussion.

Women’s League gave NT$617m over decade to KMT

The National Women’s League donated NT$617 million (US$21.07 million) to the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and its foundations over the past decade, with a foundation established by former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) receiving NT$11 million, the Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee’s investigation has found.

League ledgers documenting finances and donations over the past 10 years showed that the league under former chairwoman Cecilia Koo (辜嚴倬雲) had made a large number of donations to organizations founded by the KMT, making it one of the KMT “small coffers,” the committee said.


President-for-life Xi and Taiwan

It took many people by surprise when Xinhua news agency on Sunday announced that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was planning to scrap the term limits for the nation’s president as part of personnel changes to be passed during the National People’s Congress’ annual two-week session, which begins on Monday.

It should not have been such a bombshell, although several China experts have said they thought Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) would have been more oblique in his efforts to hold on to the presidency for more than the two terms that have been the rule since 1982.
