ANALYSIS: Bribery claims shake Ma administration to the core

By Mo Yan-chih  /  Staff reporter

Shih Cheng-feng (施正鋒), a professor at National Dong Hwa University, said the bribery scandal behind the construction project, which was initiated by Ma during his term as Taipei mayor in 2004, also damaged the public’s confidence in the capabilities of both Ma and Hau, and Lai’s case was another wake-up call for Ma that he should put less trust in grassroots politicians.

National Sun Yat-sen University political science professor Liao Da-chi (廖達琪) said Ma should strengthen his communications with party members and develop a better understanding of the party’s structure especially at the grassroots level.
