About 90 percent of netizens taking part in an informal online vote supported the tearing down of the Taipei Dome after Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s (柯文哲) administration aired its most recent security report on the facility, in which it noted five major problems and two solutions.
A Facebook page called “Professor Ko’s New Government’s Progress Bar” yesterday started an informal vote, with choices being: “Tear down the facility as soon as possible,” “Give Farglory Construction (遠雄建設) more time to improve” and “I do not trust the city government’s report.”
The poll limited votes to one per e-mail address and the page’s owner said that the vote was informal and not part of the official Taipei City Government’s i-voting program. [FULL STORY]
