NPP Releases Legislator-at-Large Nominee List|時力不分區名單 小燈泡母.黃國昌入列
The New Power Party has released its list of 12 legislator-at-large nominees. The nominees include Claire Wang, the mother of a girl who was murdered in 2016, and incumbent Legislator Huang Kuo-chang. Wang hopes to push for judicial reform and strengthen the social safety net if she gains a seat.
Two months remain before the 2020 legislative elections, and the New Power Party is hoping to maintain its status as the third largest party in the legislature. On Nov. 12, the NPP released its list of 12 legislator-at-large nominees. The nominees include environmentalist Chen Jiau-hua; former NPP Chairperson Chiu Hsien-chih; and Claire Wang, the mother of a three-year old girl who was murdered in 2016. The latter is aiming to push for judicial reform as the family member of a victim.
I hope to elevate the judicial position of victims of crimes, including litigation participation, the right to information consultation, and the right to express opinions. In addition to working hard for judicial reform, I also care about a sound social safety net. It can't only be dependent on social welfare and the Ministry of Health and Welfare. More ministries need to get involved.
Incumbent NPP Legislator Huang Kuo-chang was ranked fourth on the list. As he previously said he would not list himself for a legislator-at-large seat, there were comments that he was shooting himself in the foot. In response, Huang said that that was his previous plan, but now he believes he has more important work to do.
Some existing members and some new members wanted me to fight alongside them. Many young people remain within the New Power Party. I hope to encourage them, and I hope that this power that the New Power Party accumulated with great difficulty won't disperse because of some outside interference.
The party's spokesperson said party members will now vote on the 12 nominees. The voting will begin on Nov. 13 and last for three days. Chairperson Hsu Yung-ming hopes the NPP can exceed one million party votes in the election. The NPP is aiming for four seats, hoping to secure five, and fighting for six.
