Cai Yingwen (picture taken from Taiwan media)
China Taiwan Net, December 28. According to Taiwan's United Daily News, the outbreak of illicit cigarettes in a special plane of Cai Yingwen in July 2019 shocked society. The private cigarette case became the biggest news of the year with 6,987 votes.
Fan Lingjia, the editor-in-chief of Lianhe Daily, said that Cai Yingwen took the expectation and attention of the society, but a major fraud occurred in a corner invisible to the people. From the perspective of the media, in addition to clarifying the beginning and end of the illicit cigarette case, it is more important to observe the attitude of the Cai authorities. Only in the face of events can society sort out, think about, and precipitate, accumulating progress and energy. However, it is regrettable that since the outbreak of the illicit cigarette case, the relevant personnel have tabooed against illness and their political responsibilities are unknown. Relevant departments handle cases selectively, and there is something for small officials and no responsibility for large officials. For the long-term development of Taiwan, it has not achieved the effect of stimulating and clearing up.
The "Voting Annual News" was announced, and a total of 33,185 people voted this year. Most of the 14 shortlisted news this year were relatively negative news. The winner of the "Cai Yingwen's special plane with private cigarettes" has more than 2,000 votes. "Taiwan passed the law on marriage," and "Southern Australia cross-sea bridge collapse" also entered the top five. (China Taiwan Net Liu Hongyang)
