Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) politicians have once again turned their attention to Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Ma Ying-jeou's (馬英九) record as Taipei mayor.
DPP Taipei City Councilor Hsu Chia-ching (
The Taipei City Government spent NT$4.8 billion on the Taipei Arena, which is mired in disputes that resulted in the annulment of Eastern Multimedia Group's contract to run the facility.
The Maokong cable car cost NT$1.3 billion, but has come under fire after suffering 151 failures in 21 days of operation.
Hsu said the city government spent NT$200 million to renovate the Jiancheng night market, but the redesign did not meet operational requirements and the building was not being used.
Ma's campaign office spokesman Lo Chih-chiang (羅智強) said DPP presidential candidate Frank Hsieh's (謝長廷) "three great achievements" during his stint as Kaohsiung mayor be added to the survey. He listed these as the cave-ins during the construction of the Kaohsiung MRT, the innumerable mosquito-infested areas in that city and the Yuhuang Temple (玉皇宮) bribery case.
