2012 ELECTIONS: Tsai turns up the heat over monitoring

STATE SCRUTINY?Tsai said if Ma does not know anything about the monitoring, ‘that would be the worst-case scenario,’ indicating he has failed to function as a president

By Chris Wang  /  Staff Reporter

At an impromptu press conference late last night, Presidential Office spokesman Fan Chiang Tai-chi (范姜泰基) said that Ma had never instructed the Investigation Bureau to provide him with Tsai’s campaign schedule or estimations of her number of votes, and that the bureau had not reported any such information to the president.

“President Ma told the bureau chief the bureau should not investigate the opposition parties ... He did not ask the NSC to monitor or investigate opposition party leaders,” Fan Chiang said.
