The three vice presidential candidates last night took part in a televised
presentation of their campaign platforms and vision, at an event organized by the Central Election Commission.
Each candidate was given 30 minutes to present their statements, going in order according to a pre-show draw.
Former Academia Sinica vice president Chen Chien-jen (陳建仁), running mate of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), was the first to speak.
He talked about food safety and accused the government of being incompetent in managing crises.
If Tsai wins the election, her administration would work to restore Taiwan’s reputation as a food paradise, he said.
He also pledged that the DPP would assist the biomedical industry through policies and law revisions. [FULL STORY]
