One of these lawmakers, KMT Legislator Liao Cheng-ching (廖正井), praised the Taiwan High Court’s decision.

“Now that the KMT has lost twice, it should call off the lawsuit,” Liao said. “It’s time for the government to focus on economic issues.”

Liao is one of more than 10 KMT lawmakers preparing a statement asking Ma to end the suit.

“People are already fed up with the KMT relentlessly pursuing this case,” KMT Legislator Huang Chao-shun (黃昭順) said.

KMT Legislator Chen Ken-te (陳根德) said he hoped the joint efforts of the lawmakers would make Ma change his mind.

“A state leader should have a big heart and put people’s interests first,” Chen said.
