[Cross Straits Review 465]
The 2020 Taiwan elections have been fought well, with various "scripts" such as "liars turning into spies" and "mainland force threats", which are full of loopholes. The "CCP Agent Law" and "Reverse Penetration Law" that were pushed ... Every election, the DPP with a "terrorist China anti-China card" will be put out. This time, it wants to create the illusion of "the mainland's involvement in the elections in Taiwan". Past experience is very useful when it is used to incite the emotions of some people in Taiwan as they approach the vote and to create a populist atmosphere in the island society. Although these rumors that have discredited the mainland have been crushed in the face of facts, the destructive power they have caused to cross-strait relations cannot be ignored.
"We have never been involved in elections in Taiwan. The DPP authorities have ignored the interests and welfare of Taiwan compatriots, deliberately provoked cross-strait hostility, and undermined peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. Their intentions are to deceive the Taiwan people and seek private gain in elections. I believe Taiwan compatriots will see Their election tactics. "—— The statement of Zhu Fenglian, spokesman of the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office at a recent routine press conference, shows the mainland's consistent attitude and practice. The fact that the mainland does not participate in the elections in Taiwan does not mean that the mainland does not care about Taiwan's future. In fact, no place in the world cares more about whether Taiwan can have a promising future than the mainland, and no one in any place cares more about whether Taiwan compatriots can have a happier life than mainland compatriots.
The mainland can laugh at farce and mimes made by "Taiwan independence" elements in order to obtain improper election private benefits, but it must not ignore the negative impact on the interests and welfare of Taiwan compatriots. "Family on both sides of the strait", the mainland has never talked verbally, but it really took it to heart and fell into action. Whether it is the "31 measures" in 2018 or the "26 measures" in 2019, it will benefit Taiwan compatriots as they serve the people of the mainland, respond to the actual needs of Taiwan compatriots, and provide them with more and better development opportunities. The mainland has always said and done. However, the DPP authorities kept putting obstacles on the road of Taiwanese people's pursuit of a happy life: threats, intimidation, and even "revision of the law" prevented Taiwanese people from going to the mainland, suppressing and punishing Taiwanese youths working in Xiamen and smashing Taiwanese youth's jobs Even Taiwanese businessmen and Taiwanese compatriots returning home during the Spring Festival must make political calculations ...
Promoting the peaceful development of cross-strait relations is the common aspiration of compatriots on both sides of the strait, and it is also the common interests of compatriots on both sides of the strait. Elections are not everything to the people of Taiwan. No matter who Taiwan will choose as leader next year, they must not go against historical trends or against mainstream public opinion. The current initiative in cross-strait relations has long been firmly in the hands of the mainland. The mainland has repeatedly emphasized that it is willing to strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification with the utmost sincerity and best efforts, and "Taiwan independence" has already proven to be a dead end. The elections in Taiwan cannot determine the future of the two sides of the Taiwan Straits. The "Taiwan independence" elements will only end up in the end.
