EDITORIAL: TPP and KMT prove poor partnersThe formation of a “blue-white” alliance between the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) and the Taiwan People’s Party (TPP) for next year’s elections had been delayed for months. A closed-door meeting attended by Ko, Hou, KMT Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) and former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), who was acting as a witness, was held on Wednesday. The TPP and Ko immediately faced criticism from supporters asking why Ko had conceded to “unfair” terms. Ko even said he would attend further negotiations with a team of party members, as he is “easily duped” when alone. The TPP and KMT only have an understanding on “removing the Democratic Progressive Party from power,” but seem to have their own interpretations as to what that means.
