Cho spent most of the day giving pep talks and attending rallies and motorcades with DPP candidates Enoch Wu (吳怡農), Hsieh Pei-fen (謝佩芬) and Hsu Shu-hua (許淑華).
With eight electoral districts in Taipei and several parties contesting those eight legislative seats, the DPP and its supporters cannot afford to be complacent and must continue pushing ahead in the final two weeks before the Jan. 11 elections, Cho said.
“All eight DPP candidates are outstanding individuals and they have captured the focus of the public and the media. I and other DPP officials will assist them in the coming days. We are working hard on all eight districts,” Cho said.
“We are certain of winning at least three seats in Taipei, will likely capture four and are optimistic about winning five,” he added.

The incumbent, New Power Party’s former executive chairman Huang Kuo-chang (黃國昌), is not running for re-election.
“At the start of the campaign, Lai Pin-yu was behind in all opinion polls against the KMT candidate, and this was viewed as a difficult race for the DPP,” William Lai said.
