Soochow University political science associate professor Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) criticized the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Tuesday, accusing DPP Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) of deceit, saying that she had promised him a nomination, but now announced that a poll must be conducted first instead.
In a SuperFM radio interview that aired on Tuesday night, Hsu said that on April 8, Tsai promised that the DPP would nominate him for the legislative seat representing the eighth electoral district in Taichung, saying that only Hsu could win against Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Johnny Chiang (江啟臣).
Tsai had promised that she would take care of potential resentment from local DPP factions and that there would not be a poll to determine the DPP candidate in the district, Hsu said in the interview. [FULL STORY]
