Major party candidates should take a clear position on marriage equality, legislative
candidates from the Green-Social Democratic Party Alliance (Green-SDP Alliance) said yesterday.
“Gay voters have been deceived by politicians for too long, so we hope all presidential and legislative candidates can show sincerity and stop throwing curveballs to voters,” Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate Miao Bo-ya (苗博雅) said.
“Be brave enough to tell the public what you really think in your heart and whether you support marriage equality.
