Ma orders Wang to return to Taiwan

MAKING HAY:The president said damaging allegations of illegal lobbying involving Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng, who is in Malaysia, must be explained forthwith

By Mo Yan-chih  /  Staff reporter

Wang does not have a position within the KMT, but as legislative speaker and a key figure in the party’s localization factions, he has great influence in the party.

Wang also represents the KMT’s old power bloc, along with party heavyweights including Lien Chan and former KMT chairman Wu Poh-hsiung (吳伯雄), and has had problematic relations with Ma in the wake of fierce competition over the KMT chairmanship in 2005.
