Democratic Progressive Party’s Tsai Ing-wen called upon her team members to remain
vigilant as the presidential election enters its 100-day countdown Thursday, reports said.
Tsai’s comments came during the third day of her “Taiwan-Japan friendship tour” where she met with members of the Democratic Party of Japan.
“The 100-day mark is where the real battle begins,” she said, informing her DPP counterparts to step up the game with their campaign efforts.
“There is no time to rest. The next 100 days will be our chance to make Taiwan a better place.”
When asked if she would be taking on the advice from Kuomintang Chairman Eric Chu to ask Japan for support in Taiwan’s bid to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Tsai said she has always sought for support from Taiwan’s allies, whether it was in the United States or Japan.
“I never forgot to bring up the TPP topic whenever I had the chance. He (Chu) might not be in the know given to his busy schedule,” she explained. [FULL STORY]
