policy on Mainland China
Democratic Progressive Party
The governments on either side of the Taiwan Strait (the Communists and the KMT) had been in denial of each other’s legitimacy since the political split. Neither recognized the other as a separate state. The Democratic Progressive Party’s inception in 1986 solidified democracy in Taiwan. Later on in 2000, it even scored its first victory in the presidential election, giving rise to the first transfer of political power from the KMT. Unlike the KMT, the newly-elected government adamantly believed that Taiwan and China are two sovereign states, independent of each other, and took no interest in reunification. The DPP’s belief has positioned itself in a colliding course with China, for it vehemently insists on One-China policy and indivisible territorial sovereignty. Facing a hostile opponent with a completely different ideology, the DPP government has been put to a test in a way that it has to formulate mainland policies that satisfy Taiwanese and please involved international players and that in the meantime do not upset China. This study adopted a historic and systematic approach to analyzing the evolution of mainland policies during the course of political transition. Through literature review in combination with deductive and inductive reasoning, both the policies at different stages during the DPP’s rule and responses from all parties were studied. In addition, this study was also intended to identify the influences the domestic community, US and China had on the ruling party’s formulation of mainland policies in the hope that some light could be shed on the stalemate of the cross-strait relations.
