Lim Continues Campaigning Ahead of Recall Vote 林昶佐西寧市場掃街 趙少康表態挺罷昶

Two days remain before the recall election of independent Legislator Freddy Lim. Broadcasting Corporation of China Chairperson Jaw Shaw-kong said he supports the recall vote.


Two days remain before the recall election of independent Legislator Freddy Lim. On Jan. 7, Lim went to Xining Market to seek support from vendors. Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Ho Hsin-chun accompanied him and told anyone who would listen about Lim's contributions to Wanhua District.

Ho Hsin-chun, Legislator (DPP): “We often came to Taipei as children to visit grandparents, here on Linyi Street.”

Freddy Lim, Legislator (Ind.): “A-chun knew that we grew up here on Linyi Street. I hope on Jan. 9, we can block the recall and have a good new year. We need to keep up Taiwan's disease prevention, and everyone needs to work hard for the economy, to stimulate the economy.”

Lim urged everyone to oppose the recall. The DPP has spared no efforts to support Lim. President Tsai Ing-wen appeared with him on Jan. 6, while Vice President William Lai wanted to accompany him in making an offering. Meanwhile, the epidemic situation is worsening alarmingly and Broadcasting Corporation of China Chairperson Jaw Shaw-kong asked why senior government officials are only concerned about elections.

Jaw Shaw-kong, Chairperson, Broadcasting Corporation of China: “If Tsai Ing-wen doesn't do anything, then I'm not going to do anything. Why do you keep running over to Wanhua when the epidemic situation is so critical? It's quite unseemly for someone who is the president to keep canvassing the streets and making offerings at temples. This government official is going to drive people to revolt.”

Chung Siao-ping, Recall Initiator's Representative: “The number of times we've seen Freddy Lim in his electoral district in the half year since we launched the recall after the Lin Sheng-tung incident is 100 times more than during his five years as a legislator.”

The Kuomintang listed seven major derelictions of duty committed by Lim. Its Taipei office will hold a pro-recall rally on Jan. 8. Meanwhile, Lim continues to claim that the recall reasons are insufficient and he hopes everyone will end this issue on Jan. 9.

 

 

 

 

距離罷免投票倒數兩天,無黨籍立委林昶佐前進西寧市場,尋求攤商們的支持,民進黨立委何欣純陪同徒步掃街,頻頻掛保重,林昶佐對萬華的付出,要力保這一席。

民進黨立委何欣純表示:「小時候我們常常來台北看阿公阿嬤,就是在臨沂街。」無黨籍立委林昶佐也提到,「剛好阿純在這裡,知道我們就是在臨沂街這邊長大,就是希望1月9日可以好好阻擋,我們1月9日可以好好過年,好好讓台灣一方面防疫,一方面經濟也要大家一起努力,拚經濟振興起來。」

林昶佐號召全民站出來反罷免,民進黨立委大串聯相挺,還有總統蔡英文昨(6)日下午站台,副總統賴清德也將在今日下午,陪同林昶佐參香祈福。只是,台北、桃園疫情拉警報,中廣董事長趙少康批評,府院高層眼裡只有選舉。

趙少康說:「蔡英文不動,我也不會動,你這樣三番兩次跑到萬華去,在疫情這麼緊張的時候,以總統之尊這樣封街拜廟,一次又一次,太不像話,有點官逼民反。」

罷免提案人代表鍾小平表示:「半年來發動罷免之後,林勝東事件之後,在選區看到林昶佐的次數,比他(這)5年多了1百倍。」

國民黨也動起來,整理林昶佐失職七大紀錄,市黨部更要在今日下午舉辦罷免造勢大會,林昶佐這一席,不只國民黨,還有民間團體,都有意見。但林昶佐認為,罷免理由不充分,希望9日大家站出來終結此事。
