Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) yesterday flunked a “mid-term examination” on policies he proposed, only managing to give correct answers to five questions out of 20.
Democratic Progressive Party Taipei City Councilor Ho Chih-wei (何志偉) presented Ko during a question-and-answer session with a “test paper” of 20 questions on “Ko P’s new policies,” which were proposed by the mayor during his election campaign last year.
Ko P is a nickname the mayor is known by.Ho asked Ko to write an “A” next to policies already implemented by the city government; “B” for those that are under way, but not yet completed; and “C” for the ones that have not been attended to.
After Ko finished answering all the questions, Ho graded the test paper using information provided by the Taipei Research, Development and Evaluation Commission, and found that Ko had only gotten five questions right, a failing grade of 25 percent. [FULL STORY]
