Wang then moved for a court injunction to prevent his ejection from the party. The court ruled that Wang could keep his membership until a final ruling on condition that he pay 9.38 million New Taiwan Dollars (about 315,000 US dollars) as a collateral deposit.Withdrawal of party membership would have cost Wang his seat as a KMT legislator-at-large and his position as head of the legislative body, which he has held since 1999.Two courts ruled in favor of Wang, but the KMT filed an appeal in the name of its former chairman Ma Ying-jeou. It will not now be dealt with by the court because Chu, who took over the KMT chair in January has decided not to pursue the action in a bid to stop internal disputes.Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou said he was disappointed at the party s announcement and did not think it was the right decision.Posted in: HK/Macao/Taiwan/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 908995;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = http:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
