DPP Lawmakers Put on Show of Support for Lim 綠營力挺林昶佐 柯建銘:不站出來睡不著

Democratic Progressive Party lawmakers are out in force showing their support for independent lawmaker Freddy Lim, Lim Tshiong-tso, who is facing a recall election. DPP caucus whip Ker Chien-ming even went so far as to say he would not be able to live with himself if he didn't come out to support Lim. 


“Down with the recall! We support Freddy Lim!”


Democratic Progressive Party lawmakers show their support for independent lawmaker Freddy Lim, who is facing a recall election. DPP caucus whip Ker Chien-ming says Lim is an excellent lawmaker who needs to remain in the legislature.

Ker Chien-ming, DPP Caucus Whip: “We wouldn't be able to live with ourselves if we didn't speak up now. This is such an excellent (lawmaker). I've been saying, he should not be facing this kind of treatment.”

Freddy Lim, Legislator (IND): “Everyone is standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us from inside the legislature to outside on the street. I believe we will be victorious on Jan. 9.”

According to rumors, President Tsai Ing-wen herself may attend a Lim rally on the eve of the recall election. Independent Taipei City Councilor Lin Liang-chun and Social Democratic Party Taipei City Councilor Miao Po-ya, meanwhile are calling on young voters to rideshare to the polls.

Kao Yu-an, Spokesperson of Freddy Lim Recall Group: “The president herself is putting on a show of support for Lim Tshiong-tso. Does this show he is in even more dire straits than we thought? Does it mean you're a capable person if you found some people to come out and support you? He has completely violated the responsibilities of his office as an elected lawmaker.”

Pro-recall groups say Lim needs to face his constituents and address their concerns. The pro-recall groups are passing out flyers and hanging up banners at marketplaces. They are also planning a large-scale event on the eve of the election.
 

 

 

 

民進黨立院黨團幹部在街頭一字排開,宣傳力挺,無黨籍立委林昶佐罷免案9日投票,倒數一週林昶佐積極衝刺反罷免票,民進黨團總召柯建銘表示,林昶佐常常讓總召讓步,是優質立委,一定要繼續留在立法院。

柯建銘表示:「我們不一起站出來,坦白說於心不忍,晚上也睡不著,主要是這麼優秀,我一直在講,他不應該受到罷免對待。」

林昶佐說:「大家從立法院裡面一起並肩作戰,到今天在街上也一起並肩作戰,我相信我們一月九日一定可以安然度過,並克服難關。」

民進黨全力動員支持林昶佐,選前之夜總統蔡英文更傳出將登台助陣拉抬聲勢,無黨籍台北市議員林亮君,及社民黨台北市議員苗伯雅,則發起返鄉投票共乘巴士,訴求台中二選區與中正萬華區青年能夠共乘,衝刺綠營的投票率。

罷昶團體發言人高毓安認為:「總統都要親自來幫林昶佐站台,以林昶佐的角度來說,可能比我們想像的還要嚴峻,那你今天好像找了很多人,就代表你很會做事,這完完全全是違背一個代表在地民意的立委該做的事情。」

面對反罷昶陣營大動作宣傳,罷昶團體批評林昶佐應該要好好面對在地選民,將質疑說清楚,倒數一週也會積極啟動宣傳,志工會在各地市場發傳單,也陸續掛上罷免布條,選前之夜活動也正在籌備,要以在地公民團體的扎實陸戰來力拚政黨宣傳。
