KMT and DPP candidates continued to campaign in the final three days prior to the Taipei City legislative by-election.
The candidates continued to campaign in the streets ahead of the Taipei City legislative by-election. DPP candidate Enoch Wu criticized his KMT opponent Wang Hung-wei at a policy discussion meeting on the 4th. Wang fought back and demanded politicians must have substance in what they say.
Wang Hung-wei, Taipei City Legislator By-election Candidate (KMT): “Can he point out a specific point where I attacked him? I think some politicians must speak with evidence.”
Enoch Wu, Taipei City Legislator By-election Candidate (DPP): “Does Ms. Wang think calling me a stupid farmer is a compliment? Does Ms. Wang think calling me a gangster's puppet is a compliment? These are her own words written on her own Facebook page. ”
Vice President William Lai mocked Wang who had just been elected as a Taipei City Councilor and received a NT$30 per vote subsidy for quickly leaving her seat to participate in the legislator by-election. Wu also asked voters to think about such behavior.
Enoch Wu, Taipei City Legislator By-election Candidate (DPP): “She immediately took office and at the same time, simultaneously ran for another position. Do voters think this is a responsible attitude? It's ultimately up to the voters to decide. ”
Wang Hung-wei, Taipei City Legislator By-election Candidate (KMT): “He asked the Vice President, the future DPP chairperson, to his rally. Does Mr. Wu think another attack like this is to blur voters' focus? Or is he going to adopt a double standard?”
The two sides continued to criticize each other. On the night before the election on Saturday, Wu will not hold a traditional rally event. Instead, he will host a performance with the Paperwindmill Theatre. Wang will host a rally with senior KMT members in Rongxing Garden Park to build momentum and show unity within the party.
