This election in Taiwan has caused the world attention because the PRC’s interference. Coupled with the super stars cast, a rare political wizard, a tough Taiwan girl and a big political master on the same stage, as well as the participation of Taiwanese people at home and abroad, of course, attracted global attention. However, before the elections in the democratic era, although the candidates rushed to compete, each of them tried their best to compare the volume and the influence of the Internet through the media, for fear of being marginalized. However, politics is not a rigid dogma after all. Only really strong and calm candidates can win in the end. Let us now look back at this wonderful and powerful Taiwan President's International Cup election campaign from the election results.
The night attack failed due to fuse went out
In 2018, with the signature of a bottle of mineral water and a bowl of braised pork rice, Han blew a cold wind in Kaohsiung in just six months. Han’s current spread all over the nation and defeated most DPP mayors governing the country at that time. Its momentum is so great that it is extremely rare. Who knows, after one year, not only does it have the resources of Kaohsiung City, but also millions of Han’s fans like steel, but it was defeated by the bitter leader Tsai Ing-wen of the past 9 in one election, hit by a gap of 2.65 million votes. How about it? Is it true that as he said in his defeat, "I have not worked hard enough to live up to everyone's expectations for me"?
Of course not, since the beginning of the election campaign, Han has set a tone for an assault. Hearing the night raid chanted by him aloud "Just wait for that signal to light up and wait for that signal to ring, we will launch a lightning attack to fight a vigorous victory." Sometimes during the election, he just laid back, without any campaign schedule. However, on January 6th, when Han held a press conference, he personally announced that on January 9th, a million people would go to the Katagalan Boulevard in front of the Presidential Palace. He said that 9th is the password of activation day. On the afternoon of January 8th, Han’s Office officially notified reporters that the KMT will hold a press conference on the morning of the 9th, "DPP's involvement in William Wang’s fake communist spy case". It will be chaired by KMT Deputy Secretary-General Alex Tsai and will answer all questions accordingly.
Spy to spy Five Eyes guards for Taiwan
As a result, the Age and the Sydney Morning Herald promptly threw shock bombs on January 8th, alleging that KMT Deputy Secretary-General Alex Tsai and Chinese businessman Sun Tianqun tried to threaten and induce William Wang to change his claim, including lying. It was bought by the DPP Chiou I-jen and released false news that he was a spy. Originally, KMT wanted to take the opportunity to frame DPPs, to cheat and to discredit the DPP's integrity. No one knows it is better than heaven. The mantis catches cicadas and cardinals, and there is still a mountain high, which forced the fuse went out that would have detonated the night attack, but it finally evolved into Alex Tsai’s inexplicable dumb bomb briefing session, denies threatening William Wang. Alex claimed that he had not heard from Wang that DPP gave money because Sun insisted that Wang had said DPP Chiou had given a sum of money. The mysterious "VIP" of Han’s pre-election campaign night turned into Han’s wife Lee Chia-fen and daughter Coco Han ended in a hurry. In fact, at this moment, the election win or lose has been set, and the voting on January 11 is just a courtesy routine.
Reasons affecting this presidential election, in addition to Han’s unsuccessful strategy of thunder attack, Hong Kong ’s anti-extradition protest inspired young voters to actively participate in the election, and the anti-infiltration act exerted its power to deter the China’s cyber attack and the underground betting market, The timely rescue revealed KMT Alex Tsai’s loot, and the calm response of the Blackhawk crash did not cause social unrest. The USs supported Taiwan through a series of friendly Taiwan bills. The US-China economic and trade conflict benefit to Taiwan, all of which brought extra credits to Tsai Ing-wen’s victory.
Loss of public opinion Cold and warn you know
Judging from the voting data, of course, Han is not the only master who lost with a good card in this election. Facing the same nine-in-one general election in 2018, the 4.76 million voted in the "Tokyo Olympics with name Taiwan" referendum on the Formosan Alliance, but had only 29,324 votes in the non-division election. Under the discussion of a group of self-proclaimed senior intellectuals and doctors, Taiwan's aura of correctness has been exhausted, and the rapid loss of public opinion behind it is truly amazing. The public opinion can be carried or overturned.
The KMT legislators' no-division nomination has always been one of the factors surrounding this defeat in Han. However, the KMT gained 3,346,504 votes, 33.36%, which is not much different from the DPP's 4,811,241 votes, or 33.98%. It also obtained 13 seats. Judging from the votes alone, Wu Den-yih does not seem to bear the original sin of defeat. Instead, the number of votes cast for Tsai Ing-wen was 3,358,990 more than the votes cast for the DPP. This means that the people really don't agree with the Han, and it is not completely certain that the DPP or Tsai, but Han still has 5,522,119 iron fans.
Int'l community affirmed that Taiwan refuted China
But having said that, the KMT’s cross-strait relations position does need to be reviewed again. Does Taiwan belong to China? Why does the entire party still adhere to the 1992 consensus? Although Han has stated he does not accept one country two systems, unless over his dead body. However, the party is still named under China. Whether the KMT wants to take root in Taiwan or still want to return to its roots in China, it’s time to make it clear its affiliation with China.
After the election results were announced, President Tsai Ing-wen receipted congrats from the leaders and heads of states in the international community. They all congratulated Dr. Tsai for re-election, the presidential election in Taiwan, affirming the democratic achievements of the Taiwan people, and fighting against Chinese hegemony, said No to China. However, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: "Taiwan elections are a local issue of China." The Taiwan Affairs Office also issued a statement saying, "Our policy on Taiwan is clear and consistent. We adhere to the basic principle of "peaceful reunification, one country two systems." Adhere to the one-China principle, resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity, resolutely oppose any form of separatist attempts and acts of Taiwan independence, and resolutely promote the interests and welfare of Taiwan compatriots. ". China does not understand democratic elections at all. It has no electoral qualities in itself, but it is really shameless and unreasonable to talk about Taiwan’s presidential election.
Participate internationally and Walk into the world
In her victory speech, Tsai Ing-wen said, "With every presidential election, Taiwanese are telling the world how much we value the democratic and free lifestyle. We sincerely appeal to the authorities on the other side of strait to "peace, reciprocity, democracy, and dialogue." I hope the Beijing authorities can understand that democratic Taiwan and an elected government will not succumb to threats and intimidation. Mutual respect and positive interaction between the two sides of the strait are in line with the interests and expectations of each other's people. The result of this election is the clearest answer. The election is over, and all conflicts in the election process should end here. We have heavier responsibilities on our shoulders and more tasks ahead. Starting tomorrow, we will still work hard every day and will never let down the people who voted for us today.
Yes, Taiwan people want to tell the world through democratic elections how much we cherish a democratic and free lifestyle, how eager to participate in the world and enter the world. Now that the elections are over, what is at hand is the commitment of responsibility and historical challenges. Some people were relieved after the election and said I have fought that good battle and can leave in peace. I believe this is the voice of many people, and I sincerely hope that this is the case. But it is a pity that the truly beautiful jihad in Taiwan has not yet arrived. The entrustment of 8.17 million voters is to protect Taiwan, not to fight for the representation of China with the PRC. Taiwan is Taiwan, isn't it? In the second term of President Tsai, I hope she can cooperate with the United States to deal with the long unsettled issue of the ROC, thereby confirming the national identity of Taiwan and clarifying its legal status in the international community.
Identify Taiwan and Hold on Democracy
Does the Republic of China really own the territorial sovereignty of Taiwan? The UN Resolution 2758 is related to the ROC, but not Taiwan. Why should Taiwan cocoon itself, crown the ROC on top of Taiwan, and humiliate itself? At the end of 2005, I wrote a registered letter to President Chen Shui-bian, and urged him to handle the title of nation with caution. The reply obtained is that "the ROC on Taiwan" is now the consensus. Fifteen years have passed in a hurry, and yet today's society is still turning around in "Taiwan ROC", which is unbearable! Don't forget that the ROC is still well seated at the UN, but its representation is fully and legally inherited by the PRC. Does the ROC Taiwan want to continue to represent China or Taiwan in the future? Please be clear. At that time, Chen couldn't handle it because he faced larger number of opponents. Now DPP won more than half of the Congress is in full power, why wait? If Tsai is invited to the US speak to the Union, does she want to be recognized under the name of the ROC President, the Taiwan ROC President, or the President of Taiwan?
This presidential election lasted for more than half a year, with the enthusiastic participation of millions of voters, and even more compatriots who returned to vote from far away from all over the world. The competition for the campaign team was fierce, but it ended peacefully and held Formosa the beautiful fortress of democracy is indeed commendable. In addition to thanking God for his blessings and blessings, Taiwanese deserve to be proud of ourselves. It is hoped that in the second term of the Tsai government, she can completely lead Taiwan into the world and participate in the international community and organizations.
