Frank Hsieh returns to mixed reviews

NO CONSENSUS:Most within the DPP lauded Hsieh’s efforts, but critics accused him of a lack of transparency, and his cross-strait formula has yet to win over the party

Hung Chih-kun (洪智坤), a member of the DPP’s Central Executive Committee, said Beijing took Hsieh’s visit seriously by sending three senior officials to meet him.

However, Hung said Hsieh probably still had to persuade DPP members and supporters by clearly explaining the evolution of his proposals over the past decade — from “one country, two cities” (一國兩市) in 2000 to the “Constitutional one China” (憲法一中) in 2006 and the “constitutions with different interpretations” and “Constitutional consensus” last year, Hung said.
