    Some in KMT call for cutting ‘China’ out of party name (2020/01/14)

    A groundswell for reform is rising up in the KMT, after its crushing defeat in last Saturday’s elections. As some in the KMT call for new leadership and policies, others clamor for a new party name. Tainan Councilor Tsai Yu-hui says that the KMT, also known as the Chinese Nationalist Party, should do away with the reference to China so that more people can identify with the party. Also on Tuesday, several members of the KMT’s Central Standing Committee resigned from their posts.

    At a press conference, reelected lawmakers Johnny Chiang and Chiang Wan-an, along with Taipei Councilor William Hsu, announced their resignation from the KMT Central Standing Committee.

    Johnny Chiang
    KMT lawmaker
    The party chairman is not the only one to blame for our election loss and failure. The Central Standing Committee has not been allowed to move policies in the right direction, to lead the party in the elections or to handle party reform or development. In the Jan. 11 elections, we lost majority support. I hereby announce my resignation from the Central Standing Committee.

    Chiang Wan-an
    KMT lawmaker
    In stepping down from the Central Standing Committee, I not only take responsibility but also express the hope that in the future, our policymaking mechanism and methods can be more closely aligned with public opinion.

    Following its election defeat, the KMT is facing an internal reckoning. Some blame the loss on the party’s China stance. Others say the party’s name was part of the problem.

    Tsai Yu-hui
    KMT Tainan councilor
    The Chinese Nationalist Party is in Taiwan. That is a fact. For the sake of winning elections, regaining office, and improving people’s lives, we can remove the word “China” in the party’s name. If that makes it easier to campaign, win elections, and serve the people, then why not do it?

    Lin Wei-chou
    KMT lawmaker
    We could open it up for discussion. We could change the name to “Nationalist Party of Taiwan.” Or just “Nationalist Party.” Or “True Nationalist Party.” All that can be discussed. We could seek a new platform or positions that fit with the current Constitutional definition of our nation.

    Previous KMT defeats had already given rise to discussions of putting Taiwan first and revising the party’s name to leave out references to China. But no consensus was reached within the party.

    Lee Yen-hsiu
    KMT lawmaker
    The name of the Chinese Nationalist Party has a historical origin. I feel that in the absence of true reform, changing the party name isn’t very meaningful. Changing the name has implications that are far-reaching in terms of complexity and historical origins.

    Jason Hsu
    KMT lawmaker
    If we want to change the name, everyone will have to discuss what the new name will be, right? “Nationalist Party of Taiwan.” “Nationalist Party.” “Nationalist Party of the R.O.C.” All this discussion over the name would lead to another schism in the party.

    The KMT has changed its name four times since its founding as the Revive China Society in 1894 by Sun Yat-sen. All the revisions occurred before the R.O.C. government retreated to Taiwan in 1949.

    改名更接地氣? 國民黨基層釀"去中國化"

    國民黨慘敗之後,黨內青壯派動作不斷,台南市議員蔡育輝,拋出改名的議題,希望能拿掉中國國民黨的中國兩個字,以台灣為優先,取得更多的認同。剛連任成功的立委蔣萬安、江啟臣,則是宣布請辭中常委。

    召開記者會,連任成功的立委江啟臣、蔣萬安,還有議員徐弘庭,宣布請辭中常委。

    [[立委(國) 江啟臣]]
    “會選輸,會失敗,不光是黨主席的責任,沒有讓中常會做出正確的決策方向,來帶領整個黨在選戰或者黨務方面的改革跟發展,以至於1月11號的選舉,我們失去了民意的大多數的支持,(我)宣布辭去中常委一職”

    [[立委(國) 蔣萬安]]
    “辭去中常委的職務,除了表示負責,也希望接下來我們的決策方式,還有決策的模式,能夠更貼近民意”

    大選慘敗之後,國民黨檢討聲浪四起,兩岸論述成了眾矢之的,連黨名也遭殃。

    [[台南市議員(國) 蔡育輝]]
    “中國國民黨在台灣,這是事實,那政黨為了勝選,為了執政,讓百姓更好,去掉中國兩個字,如果能夠更容易選舉,容易贏得勝選,來執政為民服務,為什麼不可”

    [[立委(國) 林為洲]]
    “可以開放討論啦,中國國民黨要改成台灣國民黨,或者國民黨三個字,或是正國民黨,這個都可以討論,重新找到一個說法或論述,然後符合現在憲法所訂定的國家定位”

    每次碰到國民黨選舉大敗,就有該台灣優先、去中國的討論,但黨內始終沒有共識。

    [[立委(國) 李彥秀]]
    “中國國民黨的黨名,有一定的歷史淵源,我覺得如果沒有真正的改革,只是改名,其實意義並不大,這個牽涉的複雜度跟歷史淵源其實非常廣泛”

    [[立委(國) 許毓仁]]
    “現在如果先去改名字的話,大家會去討論說要改什麼名字對不對,台灣國民黨,國民黨,或是中華民國國民黨,其實在這些名字上的討論,就會又落入到另一個部分的分裂”

    中國國民黨從1894年孫文成立的興中會開始至今,歷經4次改名,不過都是在遷台之前。
