Hong Kong ’s China Ratings Agency issued a quick comment on the 14th, stating that Taiwan ’s 2020 election has entered the final countdown. As far as the current situation is concerned, the election situation of Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP seems to be stable and leading. Judging from various opinion polls, they seem to be superior to South Korea's Yu and the Kuomintang. In addition to the ruling advantages, Tsai Ing-wen's re-election and the Democratic Progressive Party victory do not seem suspicious.
However, judging from the recent election operations of Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP, it seems that they are not so confident in their stability and leadership. Are they feeling guilty? The most typical and latest example is the "reverse osmosis method", which is intended to be challenged. Hong Kong ’s China Ratings Agency believes that there are two possibilities:
First, Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP lacked confidence in their elections and felt guilty. They needed to strengthen the "sovereign" card, intimidation card to reinforce it, and even set up legal obstacles for cross-strait exchanges after the defeat.
The second is that Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP are not only highly confident in their elections, but also think that they can do whatever they want, relying on their number of "legislators" in Taiwan, regardless of opposition or questions from the Kuomintang and all walks of life. Passed through the "reverse penetration law"; did it even indicate that the DPP does not need to improve cross-strait relations after winning the election, and is preparing to go all the way to blackout, continue to tighten cross-strait relations, and crack down on cross-strait exchanges?
The quick review pointed out that in the face of widespread suspicion or doubt from all walks of life, the DPP's push for the "reverse penetration law" on the eve of the 2020 election was obviously an election operation, and it was also a reflection of its lack of confidence in the election or its guilty heart. However, if this law is passed and implemented, individuals and organizations engaged in cross-strait exchange activities may "violate the law" at any time, which will produce the "chilling effect", which will severely limit cross-strait exchanges. We cannot help asking: Does the mainstream public opinion in Taiwan need such cross-strait relations? Will Taiwan's economy and people's livelihood be better without cross-strait relations?
