Ma Ying-jeou Recycles His Old Promises but Taiwan is None the Richer

The world continues to turn in Taiwan, and Ma Ying-jeou is once again the official Chairman of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT). For those whose memory is short, Ma had been chairman from 2005 to 2007 when he had to step down because he was indicted for corruption.

Court's cowardice harms rights of all in Taiwan

The Council of Grand Justices displayed a tragic lack of judicial independence and courage Friday by failing to take a clear stand on the validity of the court proceedings which resulted in a conviction and life sentence meted to former president Chen Shui-bian on "corruption" charges by the Taipei District Court last month.

In their role as Taiwan's Constitutional Court, the 15 grand justices issued Interpretation 665 in response to a petition filed in January by the former president's legal defense team on several issues.

Illusions about Chinese goodwill

While he was in office, president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) published a book entitled The Road to Democracy: Taiwan’s Pursuit of Identity (台灣的主張). It was appropriate and justified for Lee to write about democracy. In it, he laid out his intentions and concerns as a leader, as well as showing his determined character.

The political effect of the book was to give the public a clear view of where the nation was headed, and thus a sense of security. Although many people voiced their opposition to what Lee stood for, they could direct those opinions against concrete positions.

A Beijing official’s claim that Chinese tourists were avoiding Kaohsiung because certain people in the city were aligning themselves with Tibetan and Uighur separatist forces demonstrated ignorance and “hurt the feelings of Taiwan’s people,” Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Chairwoman Lai Shin-yuan (賴幸媛) said yesterday.

Lai was referring to comments that China’s Taiwan Affairs Office Spokeswoman Fan Liqing (范麗青) made on Wednesday in response to media inquiries about the falling number of Chinese tourists visiting Kaohsiung.
