[Reporter Chen Yun/Taipei Report] When former President Ma Ying-jeou participated in the Delphi Economic Forum in Greece a few days ago, he criticized President Tsai Ing-wen for saying that the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China are not affiliated to each other, which violates the Constitution and the Regulations on Relations Between People on Both Sides of the Taiwan Strait.
The Democratic Progressive Party said today that the non-affiliation of the two sides of the Taiwan Strait is an objective fact, the status quo of the Taiwan Strait, and the Taiwan consensus are also international perceptions. Even Ma himself has publicly said that now in order to echo the "one-China principle" of the CCP authorities, he does not hesitate to fabricate history to cooperate with the performance and fight. It is regrettable to face yourself, criticize Taiwan and the ruling party on international occasions, and send the most wrong message to the world.
The Democratic Progressive Party pointed out that successive governments have advocated "non-affiliation between the two sides of the strait." Not only did former President Lee Teng-hui mention it, former Vice President Lien Chan, former Secretary General of the National Security Council Su Qi, and even Ma Ying-jeou himself and his two chairmen of the MAC Said.
In 2003, when Ma Ying-jeou was the vice chairman of the Kuomintang, he publicly stated that "the Republic of China is a sovereign and independent country, and the two sides of the strait are not affiliated to each other." Non-affiliation is the political status quo."

The Democratic Progressive Party questioned that even if the former President Ma had forgotten what his own political party advocated when he was in power in the past, he would not even have any memory of what he said?
Former President Ma is now accusing others of what he once said, "Today, Ma Ying-jeou, slapped President Ma yesterday!"
Former President Ma used "unconstitutionality" to confuse the fact that "the two sides of the Taiwan Strait are not affiliated with each other" and ignored the evolution of Taiwan's constitutional history of the Republic of China. It is really incredible.
The DPP also pointed out that according to recent polls, more than 78.6% of the people agree that "the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China are not affiliated with each other" is the objective status quo in the Taiwan Strait, and as high as 85.1% agree that the future of Taiwan is determined by the 23 million people in Taiwan.
It shows that what former President Ma said is not only completely inconsistent with the objective facts, but also runs counter to the mainstream public opinion in Taiwan.
The Democratic Progressive Party emphasizes that Taiwan is absolutely not the so-called "sacred and inalienable part of China." Our country's sovereignty cannot be violated, and the future of Taiwan must be determined by the 23 million people of the Republic of China.
As the former president of the Republic of China, Ma Ying-jeou has repeatedly cooperated with the CCP authorities in performing and fabricating history, even at the expense of slapping himself in the past. It is regrettable. I believe that most Taiwanese people cannot agree with the relevant statements of former President Ma.
