Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan’s presidential frontrunner and opposition
Democratic Progressive Party leader, said Wednesday she can feel more support from the Hakka strongholds of Taoyuan City, Hsinchu County and Miaoli County this time compared to four years ago when she ran for president.
Tsai lost 400,000 votes to her opponent, President Ma Ying-jeou, in these three Hakka strongholds combined in the 2012 presidential race.
Tsai said she can feel more support coming from these three Hakka strongholds after sweeping streets in the area on Wednesday. [FULL STORY]
