TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – If the Democratic Progressive Party wins the election, the next
government will be the Cabinet in history most adept at communicating, presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen said Saturday.
The opposition leader has been ahead in virtually all opinion polls for the January 16 presidential election for months.
She made the statement during a campaign outing on behalf of a DPP legislative candidate in the New Taipei City district of Xindian.
The biggest problem was that the people of Taiwan did not have any confidence in the country, in the government, and in politics, she said. Politics was seen too much as confrontation and the exchange of interests, according to Tsai. If the DPP returned to power next year, politics would unite people instead of dividing them, she said.
