China Taiwan Net, December 12 According to Taiwan's "United News Network" report, there are only 30 days left until the 2020 Taiwan leader election poll day. Xie Longjie, deputy chief executive of the South Korean Yu election office and chairman of the KMT Tainan City Party Department yesterday (11 (J) In the political commentary program, it was predicted that the "iron ticket warehouse" of the Tainan Green Camp had become loose. If the Kuomintang's next "Legislative Party" election can win one seat in Tainan, South Korea's Yu will be elected as the leader of Taiwan. Moreover, judging from the current election situation, the KMT may have won more than one "legislator" in Tainan.
In Taiwan's political landscape, Tainan has always been regarded as "green to juice". So far, three consecutive "legislator" seats have been won by the DPP, becoming an absolute "difficult constituency" for the Kuomintang. However, driven by the trend of "Korean Wave" in the "Nine in One" election last year, Xie Longjie won 44.31% of the votes in the "Legislative Party" by-election in the second constituency of Tainan City, losing to the people with a slight gap of 3664 votes. Party opponent Guo Guowen, Guo won 47.05% of the vote.
According to reports, Xie Longjie stated in the political commentary program that in the past, Lin Denghua of the Democratic Progressive Party and Wu Yusheng of the Kuomintang (elected legislators) both had the highest votes in Taiwan, but failed in reelection. The host asked him if he was implying the "highest-vote curse", and he said that the DPP Wang Dingyu, the sixth legislator in Tainan City, was the highest vote in Taiwan. I do n’t really know what will happen in the future. But in the 2020 election, Wang Dingyu ’s rival was Hong Xiuzhu, the former KMT chairman. Hong ’s voice was very high, and many people admired her willingness to challenge the “difficult constituency” and voted for her.
Xie Longjie believes that some people think that Wang Dingyu will "lay down and choose", but he thinks it should be "lay down and pant." Tainan used to be considered as the "iron ticket area" of the Green Camp, but after the two elections of the "Nine in One" election in 2018 and the "Legislative Party" by-election on March 16, 2019, it can be seen that the votes of the Green Camp have been loosened.
He said that he is neither optimistic nor pessimistic about the KMT election in the 2020 Taiwan leader election, but as long as the "Legislative Yuan" of the Tainan KMT is elected, South Korea will win the election. (He Jianfeng, Taiwan Network of China)
