TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The approval rating for President Tsai Ing-wen has risen 7.6
points to 41.4 percent, according to the latest poll conducted by the Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation released Monday.
The survey found 41.4 percent of the respondents approve of Tsai’s job performance, a 7.6 percent increase from the same poll last month.
You Ying-lung, chairman of the foundation, described the survey result as somewhat “peculiar”, while attributing the increase in the rating to a number of factors, including the government’s economic development initiative, Cabinet reshuffle, and pension reform plans. [FULL STORY]
