Former Legislator Lin Ching-yi Selected as DPP Candidate 中二區補選 綠營林靜儀. 黎明幼兒園長林金連參選

The DPP has selected former Legislator Lin Ching-yi as its candidate for the by-election for Taichung's second electoral district. The Kuomintang has not yet announced its candidate.


“A win for Lin Chin-lien!”

Liming Kindergarten Principal Lin Chin-lien was accompanied by civil group representatives and National Chengchi University professor Hsu Shih-jung, who is known for his opposition to land expropriation, as he announced that he will be running in the by-election to fill the vacancy in Taichung's second electoral district. 

Lin Chin-lien, Principal, Liming Kindergarten: “You'll face bullets if you run, and legal action that will last to the death if you don't run. The only thing we can do to save and help farmers and oppose improper enforced expropriation is to run for office. ”

The city government has rezoned the kindergarten's land, and Lin has been working hard over the years to ensure the school's survival. The Democratic Progressive Party announced on Nov. 3 that its candidate to fill the vacancy is former Legislator Lin Ching-yi. Lin Chin-lien promised to walk his own path, away from the blues and greens. The Kuomintang has yet to announce its candidate. Yen Kuan-heng and Yen Li-ming, who are siblings, are both possibilities although the former appears to have more support. Legislator Johnny Chiang, who also represents Taichung, was asked who the KMT will nominate.

Johnny Chiang, Legislator (KMT): “The central committee and individuals all have their own criteria and opinions. We will respect every person's decision.”

The by-election will take place in two months. The registration period for candidates will be Nov. 15 to 19. The KMT is expected to make a decision during its Central Standing Committee meeting on Nov. 17 at the latest.

 

 

 



群眾高呼:「林金連,勝選!」

在民間團體和長年反對土地區段徵收的政大教授徐世榮的陪伴下,台中私立黎明幼兒園長林金連宣布投入台中第二選區補選。

黎明幼兒園長林金連表示:「你要選要吃子彈,不選要吃官司,被凌遲到死,所以我們為了要救這些,幫忙這些農民,然後看到這些不當的強制徵收,所以我們唯一可以做的事就站出來(選)。」


為了黎明幼兒園被劃進市地重劃自辦重劃範圍,為了幼兒園的存廢,林金連多年來到處奔走,對於民進黨3日徵召前立委林靜儀投入補選,林金連砲火猛烈。

黎明幼兒園長林金連表示:「她(林靜儀)是挺財團,勞基法修惡,那麼靠近財團,那麼我們人民所有的利益,她有在照顧嗎?」


誓言在藍綠夾殺中,走出自己的路,民進黨由林靜儀出馬,但國民黨人選未定,顏家兄妹顏寬恆和顏莉敏被點名,其中又以顏寬恆呼聲最高,國民黨該推來出來,同為台中立委的江啟臣態度低調。

國民黨立委江啟臣表示:「不管是黨中央,或者他們個人,也應該有他們自己的評估跟思考,那我想我們尊重每一個人最後的選擇。」

再兩個多月就要補選,時程緊迫,中選會規劃11月15日到19日受理候選人登記申請,國民黨最晚將在17日的中常會上確定人選。
