Her campaign also asserted that Taiwan needs to eliminate binary opposition, which has put Taiwan’s democratic development at a stalemate, and has jeopardized social harmony and competitiveness, to end the perennial political division.

“That would be the most important result of the third transfer of power,” she said.

Tsai’s motorcade left Keelung and arrived in Taipei at noon. Standing on a modified truck, which was parked at the side of a road in the busy East District shopping area, the DPP chairperson told thousands of flag-waving supporters and international media members that she is confident of winning the election.

She then visited the party’s New Taipei City strongholds of Sanchong (三重) and Sinjhuang (新莊) districts and received a warm welcome from supporters lined up on both sides of the street, chanting “Dong-suan” (凍蒜, “get elected” in Taiwanese), before her motorcading traveled to her national campaign headquarters in Banciao.
