The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) yesterday said that allegations of land speculation by DPP presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) made by Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislators over the past few days were abhorrent election smear tactics, calling on KMT presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) to live up to his promise of a clean campaign.
DPP spokesperson Wang Min-sheng (王閔生) yesterday said at a news conference that the information provided by the KMT on the size, price, buyer and which plot of land was sold were all erroneous, demonstrating that all allegations are false.
“It is clear the KMT is fabricating information like charlatans,” Wang said, calling on Chu to keep his campaign staff in line and to cease a smear campaign comprised of baseless accusations. [FULL STORY]
