KMP president candidate Ma Ying-jeou hit back at once. He said the peace of cross-straits is not the “gift from the sky”. KMP has executed the suitable policy to get the peace and cooperation moving between mainland China and Taiwan and defend Taiwan’s sovereignty and security for three and half years. He stressed that DPP only caused the tense and insecure situation.
Tsai Ying-wen mentioned that the territory of the R.O.C. is included Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu, but Ma’s territory covered China the same opinion as Chinese Communist Party (CCP), that would make us, this generation, to face the problem of “ultimate unification”.

Taiwan’s economy will come to a standstill again.
