The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) caucus yesterday blasted Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) piggy bank campaign, calling it a greedy scheme to fill Tsai’s already full pockets.
Former KMT legislator Chiu Yi (邱毅) told a news conference at the legislature that it was preposterous for Tsai to launch a donation scheme to ask for money from impoverished people, when Tsai and her family have allegedly reaped billions of New Taiwan dollars in profit from land speculation.
“Tsai has paid lip service to housing justice. Last year, when campaigning for then-DPP Taoyuan mayoral candidate Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦), Tsai said the government should not serve as an accomplice for land speculators. Now the culprit could become [the leader of] our government next year,” Chiu said. [FULL STORY]
