Taiwan: The New Definition of Responsibility

During an interview with CNN on Sunday, the Taiwanese president Ma Ying-jeou said that he would take full responsibility for the blunders and mistakes made during rescue efforts.

When asked the meaning, he defined “responsability” (Taipei Times) by:

[…]

finding out what was wrong with the rescue system, correcting the problems and disciplining officials in charge.

[…]

In other words, “it’s not my fault…”

In another related news, there was an online CNN poll yesterday.

82 percent of voters said yes to the question: “Should Taiwan’s leader stand down over delays in aiding typhoon victims?”

Are you surprised?
