Taipei Times: 2020 Elections: President Tsai ‘sucking up’ to China: opponents

News_Pick03-01

President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) is “pro-China and sucking up to the Chinese Communist Party [CCP],” Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislative candidate Cheng Cheng-chien (鄭正鈐), KMT Taipei City Councilor Lo Chih-chiang (羅智強) and New Party Taipei City Councilor Hou Han-ting (侯漢廷) said yesterday.

Cheng, who is running for Hsinchu City’s legislative seat, told a news conference at KMT headquarters in Taipei that he, Lo and Hou have been labeled as “pro-China” by members of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

The DPP has applied a double standard to stigmatize them, as some DPP members’ actions should be viewed as pro-China, he said.

DPP legislative candidate Cheng Hung-huei (鄭宏輝), who is also running for the Hsinchu seat, set up a company in China and used the location “Taiwan, China” when he registered it, but his election campaign flags use the slogan “Protect Taiwan,” he added.

“Cheng Hung-huei can use the term ‘Taiwan, China,’ but continues to label people in other political camps as ‘red,’” Lo said. “Is this what the DPP’s ‘Taiwanese values’ really means?”

“Taiwanese only have one option: ‘one China’ in the future,” Lo said, repeating the sentence twice.

Tsai has also made three remarks that should be considered “pro-China and sucking up to the CCP,” he said, citing the president as having said years ago that “‘one China’ in the future is our only option,” “I am Taiwanese and also Chinese” and “the ‘1992 consensus’ means the Republic of China in Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China on the mainland.”
