DPP Transformation and Constitutional One China
Abstract:The defeat of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Taiwan's January 2012 general election has prompted intraparty debate about the reasons for its loss. Attention has focused on the party's stance on Taiwan independence. The “deep greens” are refusing to back down from this goal, while “economic voters” look to secure the benefits of economic ties to the mainland. The key to agreement in the party and stability in the area lies in formulating a policy that preserves the “one China” idea embodied in the “1992 consensus.”
