EDITORIAL: Protestors should retire gracefully

If the government feels unable to deal with the protests and the pressure exerted by retired government employees and protesting workers alike, it could do what former president Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) did and call a national affairs conference, where the combined strengths of the ruling and opposition parties were channelled toward political reform.

Former DPP chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), and senior advisor to the president Chao Shou-po (趙守博), have both suggested such a plan.

Following their advice would provide President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) an opportunity to initiate reform and rid himself of an image of incompetence.
