Kenya case not a sovereignty issue: Ma

TAIWANESE IDENTITY:Having an independently elected government should be enough and declaring independence would be a dead-end, President Ma said

By Stacy Hsu  /  Staff reporter

Asked how the KMT should reform itself amid growing Taiwanese identification, Ma said the inevitable trend should not conflict with cross-strait rapprochement and cooperation, given that independence is an unnecessary road that would only result in a dead-end.

“We can now choose our own president, elect our own parliament and govern our own affairs. How much more independence do you want? It is utterly unnecessary [to declare independence,]” Ma said.
