How the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) would govern if it wins the presidential
election in January — not just winning the election — is what is truly important for the party, DPP Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday told its national congress.
More than 500 representatives attended the event in Taoyuan, including former vice president Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) and former party chairmen Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌), Frank Hsieh (謝長廷), Yu Shyi-kun and Yao Chia-wen (姚嘉文).
