Cross-strait affairs will remain a core issue in the presidential election next year, and
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) is shooting herself in the foot by denying the so-called “1992 consensus,” senior presidential adviser King Pu-tsung (金溥聰) said yesterday.
The pan-green camp clearly thinks it has the upper hand and hopes that there will be no unexpected changes in the campaign, King said in a UFO Radio interview.
“As the opposition party, they [the pan-greens] have aggressively attacked the ruling party. Now they hail tolerance and reconciliation, because they do not want any surprises,” King told radio show host Tang Hsiang-lung (唐湘龍).
“By contrast, the pan-blue camp is in a disadvantageous position, and it needs an ‘unexpected variable’ to have a chance to turn the tide and win,” he said. [FULL STORY]
