Roadblock to Talks (2014/03/26)
The glimmer of hope provided by a possible meeting between President Ma Ying-jeou and the students occupying the Legislature has been dashed. The two sides had voiced support for a meeting without any preconditions, but then the students began to put forward preconditions.
The students believe Ma is using his status as KMT chairman to threaten disciplinary measures against lawmakers who don’t support the trade-in-services pact Taiwan signed with China. For this reason, they think Ma is insincere, and won’t meet him until he promises not to coerce KMT lawmakers. The Presidential Office feels that the students are simply finding an excuse to avoid a meeting.
