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.

前行政院長賴清德初選落敗後,外界一直好奇他的動向。前總統陳水扁週日公布多張和賴清德下午茶的照片,強調兩人共同舉杯為台灣祈福,引發各界好奇,兩人到底談了什麼?

陳致中表示:「昨天在台南,他們有見面,其實兩人已經兩年沒有見面了,中間大概是透過電話的連絡,那這個是一個老朋友之間的聚會啦!」

賴清德返台後,只拜訪陳水扁,卻遲遲未與總統蔡英文會面,外界質疑,「蔡賴會」或「蔡賴配」的可能性高嗎?與會的本土社團人士表示, 週日的談話中,賴清德其實對「蔡賴會」或「蔡賴配」的意願不大。

台灣社社長 張葉森表示:「言談當中,他有談到,如果硬要蔡賴配的話,這種事化學作用,不是物理,算數的作用,1加1大於2,不是這樣,大概也沒有辦法發揮吧!」

對此,民進黨秘書長羅文嘉強調,賴清德在初選過程中,堅持君子風度,初選結束後,立即致電蔡總統、全力支持,根據他的了解,賴清德會跟民進黨站在一起。

民進黨秘書長 羅文嘉表示:「根據我們的了解,這個賴前院長對於參與和協助,民進黨在未來半年,台灣關鍵性選戰中,他會跟我們站在一起。」

不過,張葉森強調,因為民進黨已經推舉蔡總統競選連任,本土社團支持蔡總統成為是唯一選擇,會全力推動「蔡賴配」,可是要求加強副總統的職權,讓賴清德能夠實際承擔一定的重任,可是最後還是要由賴清德決定,是否接受。
