Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) said yesterday that Premier Su Tseng-chang's (蘇貞昌) pledge on Wednesday to quit if the crime rate doesn't drop within six months deserves respect from the legislature. Wang said he would support the premier's determination. Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus whip Chen Chin-jun (陳景峻) said it was the DPP's job to work hard to make the crime rate drop. People First Party Legislator Hwang Yih-jiau (黃義交) said he wished Su success and would keep his fingers crossed for him. KMT Legislator Lai Shyh-bao (賴士葆), however, said Su was simply launching his campaign for the 2008 presidential race. In response, Vice Premier Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said it had not been appropriate for Lai to link Su's crime-crackdown pledge to the 2008 election because Su was simply showing his determination and interest in public security and it had nothing to do with the 2008 race.
