“The lyrics read: ‘Our cradle, the beautiful island, is the embrace of a mother; the proud ancestors are watching over our steps.’ Taiwan is our mother. It is our responsibility, regardless of generation, to cherish and take care of it. This land is where we live and establish our families. We love Taiwan with a genuine heart and will safeguard the Republic of China with our lives,” she said.

Hung’s spokesperson Jack Yu (游梓翔) later told the media that Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) had kept his promise and sent a congratulatory plaque to Hung, as well as to DPP Chairperson and candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).

The “White Justice Alliance” group organized an event outside the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, where the congress was taking place, to “cheer for Hung.”
