2012 ELECTIONS: No need for Ma to disclose assets: Ma campaign team

By Mo Yan-chih  /  Staff Reporter

President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) campaign office yesterday dismissed the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) call that Ma and his running mate, Premier Wu Den-yih (吳敦義), disclose their assets.

Saying that both Ma and Wu filed asset declarations with the Control Yuan every year, Ma’s campaign spokesperson Lee Chia-fei (李佳霏) urged the DPP not to manipulate the issue for electoral purposes.

The DPP on Wednesday called for the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential ticket to show they too were willing to be held to “the highest standards” after DPP vice presidential candidate Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全), who donated his farmhouse in Pingtung County to a local government after it became a campaign issue, made public his family’s assets on Wednesday.

Lee said Ma and Wu had served as officials for a long time and filed asset declarations with the Control Yuan every year as required by law.
