Democratic Progressive Party presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen denied rumors that it
has revised down on the number of anticipated win in next January’s legislative elections, reports said Sunday.
Tsai said the party’s campaign efforts are moving ahead smoothly as planned, and that their goal to achieve a certain amount of seats in the legislature will not be bogged down by unscrupulous rumors and hearsays.
“The direction we are taking with our legislative campaign is spot on,” she said.
The presidential contender was campaigning in Chiayi County when she made the remarks, a municipal that is traditionally a green stronghold.
Tsai moved across two of the area’s city and mountainous regions in order to see the formation of two separate campaign posts. The DPP’s Chiayi County legislative candidates include Huang Hsiu-fang and Chen Wen-pin. [FULL STORY]
