By Sean Lin / Staff reporterChinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) yesterday vowed to restore the nation to its former glory under late president Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國) by leading the KMT to victory in the local elections in November and to win back executive power in 2020. Wu made the remarks at an event held by the KMT at the Taipei Hero House to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Chiang’s death. “Chiang was a man with eyes like torches, a heart as big as the ocean and shoulders stronger than iron,” Wu said during his speech about his experience working under Chiang. The 10 Major Construction Projects jump-started the nation’s industries and propelled the nation to the No. He lauded Chiang for bringing about peaceful cross-strait developments and criticized the Democratic Progressive Party for allowing cross-strait exchanges to cease.
