Taiwan Quick Take: C.V. Chen urged to stay on

STAFF WRITER, WITH AGENCIES

Mainland Affairs Council Chairman Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) yesterday said he hopes that C.V. Chen (陳長文), a founding member of the quasi-governmental Straits Exchange Foundation, would consider changing his mind and staying in his job. Chen offered his resignation on Friday, saying that the foundation has lost its reason for existing now that the National Unification Council (NUC) has ceased to function and the unification guidelines ceased to apply. Wu said that Chen's logic does not seem to make sense, because the foundation will continue to function regardless of the president's decision on the unification council and guidelines.
