The majority of Taiwanese have faith in the reforms initiated by President Tsai Ing-
wen’s (蔡英文) administration, while nearly 60 percent are not convinced that Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) can reform his party, the results of a poll conducted by the Taiwan NextGen Foundation (formerly known as the Taiwan Style Foundation) showed yesterday.
Every reform launched by the Tsai administration so far has gained the approval of a majority of respondents, the poll found. The development of long-term care services and public kindergartens garnered the highest level of approval, with 88.9 percent of respondents saying the nation would benefit from the policies.
Judicial reform ranked second in terms of popularity, with 75.3 percent of respondents saying they believe it would have a positive influence on society.
Pension reforms targeting public-school teachers and civil servants ranked third, with 67.8 percent of respondents supporting the pension cuts, the survey showed.
