Lai Hasn't Met with President Tsai, Prompting Speculation|賴見扁不見蔡 蔡賴會.蔡賴配可能性遭疑
Who will President Tsai Ing-wen team up for the 2020 presidential election? DPP Secretary-General Luo Wen-jia said that he has confidence that Lai will eventually join forces with members of the DPP in the upcoming election.
After losing to incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen in the DPP party primary, many wonder about former Premier William Lai's next move. Former President Chen Shui-bian published photos of him drinking Tea with Lai on Sunday, saying that both are raising their cup for Taiwan. Many have speculated about the nature of the conversation between the two.
The two met yesterday in Tainan City. They have met in two years and have only kept up with each other via phone calls. (Their latest meeting) is like a get-together between old friends.
Lai has visited the former president, but he still hasn't met with incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen. This prompts many to speculate whether the two will eventually join hands in the upcoming presidential election. Members of local civic groups said that, during his conversation with Chen, Lai hasn't shown much inclination to join hands with Tsai, even Tsai-Lai meeting or Tsai-Lai paring.
He touched on the (potential) partnership with President Tsai. He said that it is a chemical effect, not a physical or math effect, like "one plus one more than two". If it wouldn't that be, it has no effect.
DPP Secretary General Luo Wen-jia commented in the latest development, saying that Lai has kept his composure throughout the DPP primary, and he called President Tsai to express his support (for her as the party's candidate). Luo said, based on his belief, Lai will stand with the party.
Based on our understanding of how former Premier William Lai, he will stand with the party during the campaign in the next six months, which lead to presidential election.
However, Chang Yeh-sen from the Taiwan Society said that, since the DPP has decided on Tsai as their candidate, the only choice for local groups is to promote the partnership between her and William Lai. The group hopes the party will expand the jurisdiction of future vice-president which will allow Lai to take up more responsibilities. He said it is up to Lai to decide on what he would do next.
