An International Network to Support Lai Ching-te: A Global Rally for a Brighter Future

 

An International Network in Support of Lai Ching-te

The Overseas Lai Ching-te Support Association was recently established at the prestigious Grand Hotel in Taipei. The Association, which already boasts of a substantial presence with 97 branches in 43 countries across six continents, is solely dedicated to supporting Lai Ching-te, a much-anticipated candidate for the Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan’s presidential elections. Tsai Jen-tai, the founding president of the New York Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce, has assumed the role of the honorary president of this newly-formed Association.

Advocating for Taiwan’s Independence

Tsai Jen-tai, in his address, criticized other presidential candidates for their reticence in declaring Taiwan as an independent country separate from China. He lauded Lai Ching-te for his courage and strong-willed demeanor, asserting that he will not allow Taiwan to follow the path of Hong Kong, a reference to the perceived erosion of democracy and freedom in Hong Kong under China’s influence. The honorary president emphasized that Lai Ching-te is a stalwart advocate for Taiwan’s sovereignty, democracy, and freedom.

The “Sun Never Sets Country Alliance”

In a show of international solidarity, representatives from 19 cities in seven countries across six continents joined together to establish the “Sun Never Sets Country Alliance”. Chien Ming-tzu, the president of this alliance, called upon overseas supporters to rally behind Lai Ching-te in the upcoming 2024 presidential elections.

Criticism of Pro-China Candidates

Chien Ming-tzu criticized pro-China candidates for prioritizing personal interests over national interests. He suggested that these candidates fail to comprehend the evolving global dynamics, particularly the trend of countries decoupling from China. Chien Ming-tzu went on to praise Lai Ching-te’s unwavering dedication to Taiwan, describing him as a truthful and reliable candidate capable of safeguarding Taiwan’s democracy and freedom.

The Importance of Voting

Both Tsai Jen-tai and Chien Ming-tzu underscored the significance of voting in the upcoming elections. Tsai appealed to overseas friends to return home and exercise their right to vote. He asserted that Lai Ching-te, with his extensive 30 years of political experience and dedication to Taiwanese values, is the only candidate capable of leading Taiwan towards peace and continued economic development.
