President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and her main challenger, Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) ofthe Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), were out on the campaign trail yesterday, with Tsai rallying the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) faithful and others in New Taipei City, while Han made appeals to his city’s residents.
Tsai urged members of the public to support her re-election bid as she opened the New Taipei City headquarters for her campaign in Banciao District (板橋).
She has delivered on her 2016 election campaign promises to protect the nation’s sovereignty, improve the economy and take care of children and the elderly, she said.
New Taipei City has a special significance to her, as the experience she gained running for mayor in the 2010 elections helped transform her from an academic to a politician, and gave her a better understanding of the public, Tsai said. [FULL STORY]
