REFERENDUMS 2021/Political parties, supporters make final push before referendum

Taiwan's two main political parties, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the opposition Kuomintang (KMT), are stepping up their campaign to drum up support for their respective positions on four referendums, in the final days before the Dec. 18 vote.

President Tsai Ing-wen (???), who is also chairperson of the DPP, has been giving speeches that encourage her supporters and the general public to cast their votes in favor of the government's policies.

The opposition KMT, which initiated the referendums, has held many rallies to encourage the electorate to vote "yes" on the plebiscites.

Former President Ma Ying-jeou (???) has been making more frequent public appearances, campaigning with his party, the KMT, for a vote in favor of the four referendums.
