Tsai slams Ma’s ‘simplistic’ proposal

KMT caucus whip Chao Li-yun (趙麗雲) said the KMT caucus would propose a referendum on the issue when necessary.

“The DPP used to employ the tactic of referendums to boost its campaigns. Why can’t the KMT initiate a referendum?” she said.

Chao said the idea to negotiate a peace accord with China was no different from that proposed by former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) on whether Taiwan needed to sign an agreement with China to build a peaceful and stable interaction framework in 2003, when Tsai Ing-wen was chairperson of the Mainland Affairs Council.
