President Tsai Ing-wen is calling on supporters to cast their votes for her on Election Day, as she fights for a second term. Tsai was speaking Thursday in a livestream introduced by her campaign office.


To boost public support and confidence in her administration, Tsai said she will spend the next 30 days talking about her vision of the future. She also said she will highlight the achievements of her four years in office in a clearer, more concrete, and more thorough way. Tsai said she has no plans to waste time on political rhetoric.


Tsai also took indirect aim at opposition KMT legislative candidate Wu Sz-huai. She urged her supporters to vote for legislative candidates who have a clear stance on Taiwan’s national security, its confidential files, and overall goals.


Wu is a retired general who caused controversy after traveling to Beijing in 2016 to attend an event presided over by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
