Democratic Progressive Partypresidential candidatelai qingdeYesterday it was announced that Xiao Meiqin, representative of the United States, will be the deputy partner. “Lai Xiaomi” has been rumored for a long time, and it is no surprise. However, when Xiao Meiqin walked into the campaign headquarters, you could still feel the enthusiasm emanating from up and down the DPP. Even Lai Qingde described his mood as “extremely exciting”, which shows that at this time when the “Blue and White” is stealing the spotlight, the DPP needs a shot in the arm.
Lai Ching-te was recently asked about the deputy issue. Although he didn’t admit it directly, all the answers pointed to Xiao Meiqin. He once said that there were six deputies on the list, but Xiao may be the only deputy officially invited from beginning to end. Lai also revealed yesterday that he first mentioned the deputy issue to Xiao during his visit to Honduras in January last year. In other words, “Lai Xiaopei” has been preparing for nearly two years.
Before the formation of “Lai Xiao Pei”, there were a lot of rumors in the Democratic Progressive Party, including Xiao Meiqin’s suspicions, or Lai Qingde might find someone else, but in fact Xiao has always been Lai’s first choice. . Apart from Xiao’s personal characteristics, the more important reason is that Lai Xiao has a certain degree of familiarity. Because they have known each other for 30 years, they do not need to trust people to communicate with each other. In Lai’s mind, Xiao has become a suitable partner to run the country together.
Although Xiao Meiqin was once in trouble before nodding to become deputy, Xiao has a strong sense of mission. People in the Democratic Progressive Party predict that Xiao will eventually return to Taiwan. It is impossible for Xiao to be absent from the Democratic Progressive Party’s key battle. As long as the Party needs it, he will do whatever it takes. Just like I did in Hualien for the first ten years.
In 2010, when Hsiao Meiqin was sent to Hualien by then-Party Chairman Tsai Ing-wen to run in the legislative by-election, many people thought that Hsiao Meiqin’s urban style seemed incomparable with the eight poles of Hualien, But he did not expect Xiao to be ready to go. Before Xiao went to Hualien, Tsai Ing-wen once asked, “Do you want to be?vote“, but Xiao said, “Since you have to send people, don’t vote.” Xiao’s decisiveness shocked the party.
