    Taipei mayor, DPP trade barbs over Kinmen-Xiamen bridge proposal (2022/06/23)

    A war of words has broken out over a proposal to build a bridge. Specifically, a bridge that would connect the offshore county of Kinmen and China’s Xiamen City. Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je touted the bridge last Saturday during a visit to Kinmen County. When his proposal was sharply criticized, he said that President Tsai Ing-wen herself had endorsed the bridge years earlier. The mayor’s claims have met sharp criticism from the Mainland Affairs Council and the DPP.

    Ko Wen-je
    Taipei mayor
    Taipower needs to subsidize Kinmen’s power generation to the tune of about NT$2 billion a year. If Kinmen were connected to Xiamen’s energy grid, there would be a savings of about NT$15 per kilowatt-hour. I’m considering this purely from an economic viewpoint. Of course, a Kinmen-Xiamen bridge would be good.

    Voice of Chiu Chui-cheng
    Mainland Affairs Council spokesman
    National security is a paramount concern in the promotion of cross-strait affairs. The current situation in the Asia-Pacific region and in the Taiwan Strait is complex and sensitive. In order to ensure national security and our overall well-being, the government has not pushed forward with any plans or policies regarding a Kinmen-Xiamen bridge. I’d like to ask everyone not to dance to the tune set by the Chinese authorities. Our government attaches enormous importance to the livelihood issues that Kinmen residents care about. It will do its best to support Kinmen’s economic development and the people’s wellbeing.

    Last week, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je proposed building a bridge connecting Kinmen and Xiamen. In response, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said that national security should be the top consideration in cross-strait relations. It said that Ko’s proposal was, quote, “ignorant” and “absurd. “

    Ko is now hitting back, claiming that the bridge was part of President Tsai Ing-wen’s campaign platform in 2016.

    Ko Wen-je
    Taipei mayor
    The Mainland Affairs Council rarely uses such strange words – words like “ignorant” and the like. In 2016, when Tsai was running for president, didn’t she propose this bridge when she was in Kinmen? Are you saying that in 2016, her views on Kinmen were “ignorant” and “absurd”? If this really is the case, the Mainland Affairs Council needs to give us all an explanation. I think they will all lose their jobs tomorrow.

    On social media, Taipei City government spokeswoman Vicky Chen posted the campaign platform of a DPP legislative candidate in 2016. The candidate called for a Kinmen-Xiamen bridge and for a feasibility study to be conducted within a year. According to Kinmen County Council Speaker Hung Yun-tien, President Tsai had indeed endorsed the bridge when she visited Kinmen as DPP chairwoman. But the DPP has denied the claim, saying the bridge was never one of Tsai’s own policies. It said that in July 2016 at the DPP’s national party congress, the proposal was broached only by delegates from the party’s Kinmen chapter.

    Hsieh Pei-fen
    DPP spokeswoman
    The news uncovered by Vicky Chen pertains to proposals and speeches made by individual delegates at our national party congress. It does not reflect the political views of Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen.

    Huang Shih-chieh
    DPP lawmaker
    Cross-strait relations involve such big issues that if a presidential candidate were to make such a policy, it would make international headlines. So clearly the claim is false.

    The DPP moved to quash Ko’s claim. It said the bridge was the brainchild of a legislative candidate, who already left the party in 2018.

    柯嗆蔡2016提"金廈大橋" 綠:非蔡政見.從未討論

    台北市長柯文哲,日前被陸委會批評,興建金廈大橋的主張"無知且荒謬",但柯文哲反嗆,這是蔡英文2016年競選時提出的意見。不過,民進黨發言人謝佩芬則否認,強調那只是金門縣黨部個別黨代表的發言,並不是蔡英文的政見,這幾年也根本沒有實質討論。

    [[台北市長 柯文哲]]
    “台電一年大概要補貼金門發電成本大概要20億,你從廈門直接接電,一度電就差了大概差到15塊錢,我就純粹從經濟上面考量,當然做個金廈大橋對金門是好的”

    [[聲源:陸委會副主委 邱垂正]]
    “推動兩岸事務,必須以國家安全為最高考量,當前亞太及兩岸情勢複雜敏感,為確保國家安全及整體利益,政府並無推動金廈通橋的政策與規劃,請國內各界切勿隨中國當局所設定的議題起舞,有關金門鄉親關心的民生議題,政府都十分重視,會盡最大的能力,以促進金門經濟發展及民生福祉”

    台北市長柯文哲日前拋出興建金廈大橋,陸委會強調推動兩岸事務應以國家安全為最高考量,同時也批評柯文哲的主張無知且荒謬。

    柯文哲則反咬,金廈大橋是蔡英文2016年競選時的政見。

    [[台北市長 柯文哲]]
    “陸委會很少用這種奇怪的字眼,什麼無知,還什麼,欸,2016年小英要選總統,去金門政見不是有這條嗎,你的意思是說2016年,小英去金門政見無知而且荒謬嗎,是這樣嗎,請陸委會出來說明,我看你們明天工作會丟掉”

    北市府發言人陳智菡也透過臉書,引用2016年民進黨金門立委候選人陳滄江,在競選公報的政見欄中,曾提到一年內要評估金廈大橋的興建可行性,甚至宣稱,金門議長洪允典曾公開表示,時任民進黨黨主席的蔡英文到金門助選時,的確將此列為共同政見。但民進黨反駁,蓋金廈大橋不是蔡英文的政見,而且2016年7月,民進黨全代會中,金門縣黨部個別黨代表的發言跟提案。

    [[民進黨發言人 謝佩芬]]
    “陳智涵他所查到的新聞,是過去民進黨個別黨代表,在全代會上面的提案跟發言,並不是蔡英文主席的政見”

    [[立委(民) 黃世杰]]
    “兩岸的關係是多麼何等大事,有任何總統候選人提出這樣的政見,會成為國際的新聞,顯然這不是事實”

    民進黨全力滅火,強調金廈大橋是陳滄江的個人發言,而且陳滄江早在2018已經退黨。
