The Green Party-Social Democratic Party Alliance yesterday
condemned the three presidential candidates for agreeing to be “interviewed” by a coalition of seven industry and commerce organizations, saying the candidates are siding with business leaders to the detriment of workers’ rights.
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) yesterday spoke at an economic development forum organized by the seven organizations in Taipei, with People First Party presidential candidate James Soong (宋楚瑜) to speak at a forum staged by the organization today and Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) to attend a forum held by the organization on Tuesday next week.
While Tsai said yesterday’s meeting was not an interview, but an exchange of opinions, the alliance was not mollified. [FULL STORY]
