Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate
Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday canvassed the streets of Nantou, Changhua and Taichung to solicit support in difficult constituencies, calling on voters to concentrate all their votes for the party and its candidates.
On the first leg of her campaign tour yesterday in Nantou’s Jhong Sing New Village (中興新村) to stump for DPP legislative candidates Tsai Huang-liang (蔡煌瑯) and Chang Kuo-hsin (張國鑫), Tsai Ing-wen was greeted by a crowd of overseas Taiwanese and business leaders, who held placards showing where they came from and expressed support for Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP’s candidates.
“Nantou is Taiwan’s heartland, and the local constituencies are a decisive battlefield and a key election indicator. It bodes well for the election if Nantou shows good results,” Tsai Ing-wen said. [FULL STORY]
