Lin Ching-yi Thanks Taichung Voters 中2選區立委補選勝出 林靜儀今謝票

The DPP's Lin Ching-yi went on a thank-you tour after winning the Taichung City District 2 legislative by-election. KMT Chair Eric Chu, meanwhile, apologized and said he would shoulder the party's recent defeats.


Lin Ching-yi went on a thank-you tour on Jan. 10 after winning the District 2 legislative by-election one day earlier. Asked when she will visit the Yen family, Lin said Yen Ching-piao has only just gotten out of the hospital and she will wait until he is in better health.

Lin Ching-yi, Taichung City District 2 Legislative By-election Winner: “Yen (Ching-piao) has only just left the hospital. It wouldn't be right to bother him right now. When he's in better health and post-election affairs have been settled and if he's able, we can set up a meeting.”

Yen Kuan-heng, Taichung City District 2 Legislative By-election Candidate: “We are very moved and very grateful for everyone's help. There really isn't any need for meaningless attacks. Everyone did their best.”

Yen Kuan-heng says although he lost the race, he will always be there for his constituents. However, he also declined to answer questions on whether he will run for office again. In just one month, the Kuomintang has come out the losing end on the four referendums, the Taichung City legislative by-election and the Freddy Lim recall vote. Some are calling for party Chair Eric Chu's resignation.

Jaw Shaw-kong, BCC Chair: “People are talking about going after war criminals and calling for Eric Chu's resignation. I don't think (that's right). I think you win some and you lose some, and he's only just taken over the post. The KMT can't just keep changing chairs.”

Eric Chu, KMT Chair: “We are shouldering every failure and setback together. However, we remain steadfastly committed to a system of checks and balances on our road to democracy.”

While lighting incense and worshipping at Tainan Grand Matsu Temple on the 10th, Chu said he would shoulder the responsibility of the defeats and he is traveling around Tainan to listen to the grassroots ahead of the local elections at the end of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

車隊一路掃街,感謝選民的支持,10日一早,中二選區立委補選勝選的林靜儀揮手向選民致意。對於何時會拜訪顏家?林靜儀說,顏清標才剛出院,會等他身體狀況好轉,再過去拜訪。

台中市第二選區立委補選當選人林靜儀說:「顏董事長才剛出院,我覺得現在去打擾他不太好,但是如果等他身體狀況好一點,選後的事務也忙得差不多了,我當然認為他可以的話,我們可以來大家來見見面。」

台中市第二選區立委補選落選人顏寬恒表示:「所有的人的協助我們都非常感動,也非常感謝,所以其實也不要做太多的這樣子的無謂的攻擊啦,我相信這次大家都盡力了。」

面對敗選,顏寬恒表示只要鄉親有需要,隨時都在,卻不回應未來是否有再參選的可能?不過,國民黨1個月內,接連在四大公投、台中補選及林昶佐罷免案中挫敗,支持者紛紛要求黨主席朱立倫負責,可是朱立倫9日卻「神隱」。

中廣董事長趙少康提到:「有人說要抓戰犯,要朱立倫下台,我不認為。我認為勝敗兵家常事,他也是剛上來,國民黨也不能這樣一直換主席。」

國民黨主席朱立倫指出:「任何的失敗或責難,我們一肩扛起,但是我們對於民主的制衡的道路,我們絕不中止,繼續努力。」

朱立倫直到10日上午,現身台南天后宮上香拜拜,對於敗選,強調會扛下責任,但也強調,面對年底的地方大選,備戰的腳步不能停,所以走訪台南,傾聽基層聲音。
