I May Enter the Race at the Last Minute: Tsai Pi-ru|投入高市補選? 蔡壁如:最後一刻再決定


Regarding the upcoming Kaohsiung City Mayor by-election, Taiwan People's Party Legislator Tsai Pi-ru said that a blue-white cooperation would be very difficult to achieve and said she is not personally ruling out the possibility of throwing her hat in the ring at the last minute.


Kaohsiung City mayor by-election candidates will register for the race between the 20th and 24th. Vice Premier Chen Chi-mai, who is widely expected to represent the Democratic Progressive Party, spent the weekend making appearances all over Kaohsiung. He visited Taiwan AI Labs in Taipei on the 15th.

I will give my all to showing my determination and do the best job I can in the next stage of my career. As for what kind of candidate the KMT will nominate, I respect the KMT's thinking and decision.

The Kuomintang and Taiwan People's Party have yet to announce their candidates either. TPP lawmaker Tsai Pi-ru admitted a joint blue-white candidate was unlikely and said she may throw her hat in the ring at the last minute. Tsai moved her residence to Kaohsiung in March.

Should we jointly support an independent candidate that local residents will support? Have you discussed this with Mayor Ko? If he tells me to run -- the chair said this is troublesome, never mind, go run. I'll make my decision at the last minute.

New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-ih, meanwhile, said the KMT needs to choose a young candidate with local roots as soon as possible and he would definitely campaign for the candidate.

The KMT should have autonomy and the confidence to accept challenges. It should decide on a candidate as soon as possible -- hopefully someone who is young, innovative, and popular locally.

According to reports, at-large lawmaker Wu I-ding may be the one for the KMT. KMT legislative caucus convener Lin Wei-chou says the KMT will not be absent from the election and the party is reviewing its candidate shortlist. Lin hopes the KMT Central Standing Committee can finalize details on the 17th and formally announce its candidate before the 19th.



高雄市長補選將在6月20號到24號受理候選人登記,各政黨要推派誰來選,也正如火如荼進行中,預期將代表民進黨投入補選的行政院副院長陳其邁,週末在高雄跑行程,15號回到台北,參訪台灣人工智慧實驗室。

行政院副院長 陳其邁表示:「我一定是專心全力的,來展現我的決心,把我要做的下一個階段的工作,把它做好。至於國民黨要提什麼人選,這個要尊重國民黨的一些想法跟做法。」

相較於民進黨人選呼之欲出,國民黨和民眾黨則還沒有確定誰來出征,民眾黨不分區立委蔡壁如上電台專訪,坦言雖然希望藍白能夠共推人選,但也知道難度很高,在三月分已經入籍高雄的她,鬆口最後一刻會再做決定。

民眾黨立委 蔡壁如 vs. 電台主持人 黃暐瀚表示:「那我們是不是來共推一個,當地大家都可以支持,推一個無黨籍,讓大家都可以支持。(你跟柯市長談過了嗎?如果他叫你出來選呢?)主席講說,這個傷腦筋,算了,你去選好了,最後一刻再來決定好了!」

對於民眾黨表態希望共推,新北市長侯友宜則不這樣認為,他表示國民黨應該快速提名年輕又接地氣的人選,如果他有餘力,一定會全力幫候選人加油打氣。

新北市長 侯友宜表示:「國民黨應該有自己的自主性,有信心接受挑戰,能夠快速地提名在地,年輕有創意接地氣的候選人。」

傳出國民黨不分區立委吳怡玎可能參選,國民黨立法院黨團總召林為洲強調不可能放棄補選,目前人選都在密集徵詢當中,希望在17號週三中常會通過提名辦法,19號前提出人選,全面應戰。
