Taiwan’s ruling Nationalist Party has signaled that it is ready to accept organized political opposition, a senior party source said. Over the last few days, the Nationalists have been hammering out a compromise with opposition politicians to allow them for the first time to set up permanent offices in Taiwan, the source said. The Nationalists have reportedly stopped short of allowing a formal opposition party but have conceded that the offices will have a political character. The Nationalists banned all new parties after taking refuge in Taiwan in 1949.
