Former premier Frank Hsieh on Wednesday attended the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) Central Standing Committee meeting as deputy chairperson on behalf of Tsai Ing-wen, the DPP presidential candidate.

In response to China's Taiwan Affairs Office Spokesman, Ma Xiaoguang’s statement on Tuesday saying that ties between Taiwan and China could “collapse” if Taiwan refuses to recognize the “1992 consensus,” referring to Tsai’s cross-strait policy, Hsieh said that Tsai’s platform of maintaining of the status quo in cross-strait relations is a policy adjusted to public opinion, as compared to four years ago.

Hsieh added that Tsai’s cross-strait policy has earned recognition both domestically and internationally. “Tsai’s maintaining of the status quo was indeed a Taiwan Consensus. It is neither a DPP consensus nor a Communist Party’s consensus, and it is unnecessarily a cross-strait consensus,” said Hsieh.

When asked about the “1992 Consensus,” Hsieh said that it is undeniably a historical fact, but it depends on the Taiwanese people to stick together and reach an ultimate consensus within the island, which will then come the consensus between the straits.
