Ma Ying-jeou, the leader of Taiwan's biggest opposition party, said in a TV speech Wednesday Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian should resign because his incompetence and corrupt family were dragging down the island. "We cannot allow Chen to continue. It's negative for Taiwan," said Ma, a Harvard-educated lawyer and mayor of Taipei. Taiwan lawmakers are currently debating whether to hold a referendum on recalling Chen because of alleged family corruption and incompetence. The ruling Democratic Progressive Party and its allies boycotted the debates. The vote, likely to be held on Tuesday, is not expected to pass because the opposition needs a two-thirds majority to approve it.
