Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文)
yesterday said remarks made by Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) — who said an election win for Tsai would harm agricultural exports — were “disappointing,” urging him to do more than just scare people.
“The KMT presidential candidate is unable to show his party’s achievements from good governance [in the past seven years], or to present complete and constructive planning for the economy and industries. Instead [Chu] only continuously plays the ‘threat’ card,” Tsai told reporters during a campaign outing in Changhua County.
“The people of Taiwan would be disappointed,” she said.
Instead of making threats, Chu should brainstorm what he could do to improve the competitiveness of the agricultural sector in the international market, Tsai added. [FULL STORY]
