Yesterday the KMT’s 19th National Party Congress was held at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall.  President Ma Ying-jeou, KMT Chairman Eric Chu, Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng, former Vice President Lien Chan, former KMT Chairman Wu Poh-hsiung, Premier Mao Chi-kuo (毛治國), KMT Vice Chairman Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌), and KMT Vice Chairwoman  Huang Min-hui (黃敏惠) attended the National Party Congress.  Approximately 90% of the KMT party delegates attended the National Party Congress.
Deputy Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu  was confirmed as the KMT’s official Presidential candidate by acclamation.
  The delegates subsequently gave her a standing ovation.
Hung Hsiu-chu delivered a 15-minute, impassioned acceptance speech, calling on the whole party to unite in order to win in the 2016 Presidential Election.  Hung pledged, if elected, to abide by the Constitution, and follow the KMT party platform to consolidate, deepen and push for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations based on the “1992 Consensus” and insisting on “Taiwan First,” “Public Opinion First,” “Parity,” and “Diginity.”
Hung also explained the path the country she would lead by the 16-Chinese character phrase, i.e., “Peace, Openness, Equitable Distribution of Wealth, and Morality.”  Hung said that she believed in “honesty, respect, mutual inclusiveness, and mercy.”  Hung added that she hoped people in Taiwan could jointly strive to transcend the reunification-independence issues and move towards a community of shared destiny, co-existence and co-prosperity.
Yesterday the National Party Congress also confirmed amendments to the KMT’s party platform.  The KMT’s cross-Strait policy in the platform would promote the spirit of the “Joint Five-Point Statement for the Peaceful Development of the Taiwan Strait,” insist on the Republic of China Constitution, and push for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations based on the foundation of the “1992 Consensus” and “one China, different interpretations.”  The party platform also stipulated that the party should engage in cross-Strait interactions on the premise of “all for Taiwan, all for the people.”
