From Taipei Times:
As the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) plan to prioritize “Taiwan” in the proposed charter change threatens to split party members, KMT Chairman Wu Poh-hsiung (Âê≥‰ºØÈõÑ) tried to play down the issue yesterday, insisting that the party was still seeking consensus on the revision.
“The KMT’s biggest responsibility at present is to defend the Republic of China … We are being pragmatic, but we won’t make big changes on the party’s goals,” Wu said yesterday before hosting a KMT local government chiefs meeting in Taipei County.
The KMT is expected to revise the party charter during its congress on June 24 and include “Taiwan-centered” values in the revised version. The changes will mark the first ever mention of “Taiwan” in the party’s charter. [Full Text]
