The People First Party (PFP) yesterday reiterated PFP Chairman James Soong’s (宋楚瑜) promise that he would only be a one-term president if he wins Jan. 11’s election and added that he would use the four years to rebuild Taiwan’s civil service system.
Soong made the pledge to be a one-term president at the first platform presentation for presidential candidates on Wednesday.
President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has let cliques within the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) decide how political resources should be used, he said, adding that this had severely affected the nation’s policy direction.
“I do solemnly swear that I am only going to serve one term, during which I would clean up the mess and rectify the situation,” Soong said. “I would defend the sovereignty of the Republic of China, and am determined to preserve its freedom and democracy.”
“I would seek neither independence from nor unification with China in the next four years,” he said.
