Posted on 2017-12-07 19:42:13
A new poll shows that many residents of New Taipei City are unhappy with the
city government's handling of the Ba-Xian waterpark explosion.

In a poll reported on TVBS, 42 percent of respondents were unsatisfied with
the municipality's response to the incident, 27 percent were satisfied, while
30 percent expressed no opinion.

TVBS says the handling of the 2015 explosion that injured almost 500 and
killed 10 is significant because public sentiment on the issue could affect
the upcoming local elections when a new mayor could be chosen.

It is reported that families of the victims have files lawsuits claiming
national reparations, however the new poll says 59 percent of respondents do
not agree they should receive the payments, while 28 percent think they
should be compensated.

13 percent did not express an opinion on the matter.
