Responding to the controversy, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) spokesperson Lin Chun-hsien (林俊憲) said it was not the first time the KMT had resorted to tailor-made mechanisms for Ma’s personal benefit.

“The KMT revised its party chapter so Ma could run for president,” Lin said.

Ma’s doubling as president and KMT chairman did not benefit the country as he has claimed, Lin added.

However, Lin said the DPP declined further commen because it is an internal matter for the KMT, which involves a power struggle within the party.
