DPP Analyst Says 4 Reasons for Tsai's Primary Win
Posted on 2019-06-13 18:16:14
An analyst with the DPP party says there are 4 reasons for Tsai Ing-wen's
primary win.

The party representative says the first reason is that it takes time for
political achievements to bear fruit, and compared to the poor showing for
the party in the local elections last November, those results are starting to
show now.

He cites reductions in taxes, the maintained levels of Taiwan's economy, the
return of Taiwan companies to the island, and the shift towards indigenous
national defense capabilities.

The second factor is strong support with Taiwan's youth, which the DPP
official says was won through Tsai's rebuke of Chinese President Xi Jin-ping
at the new year, the rejection of "One Country, Two Systems," the passing of
marriage equality, and the raising of minimum wages, among others.

Tsai Ing-wen's stance against China's pressuring of Taiwan has been strong,
and he says this has won the public's confidence in her handling of the issue
of Taiwan's sovereignty, especially in light of Beijing's recent push for
extradition legislation in Hong Kong.

Finally, the official says Tsai has found success in reaching out to her
constituents through new social media like Instragram, Facebook, and LINE.
