前新北市長朱立倫接受《今日新聞 NOWnews》專訪,談到相對於自己來說,氣勢更旺的黨內同志,像是高雄市長韓國瑜和鴻海集團董事長郭台銘,到底朱立倫的優勢是什麼?

TAIPEI (The China Post) – Former New Taipei Mayor Eric Chu (朱立倫) gave an exclusive interview to NOWnews.com, one of Taiwan’s leading online media, on April 30, during which he talked about what makes him a better candidate than Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) and Hon Hai Chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘).

「韓市長是一個非常接地氣的一位市長,他也是這半年來讓國民黨幾乎翻轉的,一個非常重要的國民黨資產。」朱對韓相當肯定且佩服,更說國民黨必須保護韓國瑜,而郭台銘是「世界級的企業家」,一方面朱立倫感佩他的勇氣和決心,另一方面更覺得總統蔡英文「真的很糟糕」,會爛到要「企業界的人寧可來從政」。

Chu said he’s very impressed with Han and believes that the party should work hard to protect him. “Han knows what locals want. He is a very important asset to the Kuomintang (KMT).” On the other hand, Chu appreciates Gou’s courage and determination to enter politics as a businessman. He also criticized President Tsai for her “poor performance.”

不過朱立倫話鋒一轉,開始談自己豐富的政治歷練,「我37歲當上立法委員,40歲桃園縣長,一路8年桃園縣長、行政院副院長,又8年的新北市長。」朱立倫表示對台灣給他的機會相當感恩,有20年歷練的機會,不管是中央到地方,服務過6百多萬人口,當然有責任要為這塊土地更多民眾來服務。

Talking about his experience as a politician, Chu said he’s very grateful to Taiwan for providing so many opportunities to serve 6 million people over the past 20 years. “I became a legislator when I was 37, and then county magistrate when I was 40. I also served as vice premier and New Taipei Mayor for eight years,” Chu said.

不過被問到一直以來低迷的民調,朱立倫遲遲無法超越韓國瑜、郭台銘,朱立倫也吐露心聲:「我最看重的是我們跟民進黨的對比戰力,不是在黨內的互比,有時候講實在話,一陣『韓流』吹來、一陣刮一個『台風』,你可能立刻就有一個心情上的轉換。」

Asked about his low support rate compared to Han and Gou, Chu said that he chose to focus more on the benefits of the party since public opinion is  always changing.

朱立倫也分析自己民調落後的原因,他認為韓市長、郭董事長、柯市長,都網路聲量強,也是非傳統的政治人物。「我是跟蔡英文總統、賴院長、王院長,都是比較傳統的,因為我們都在行政體系裡面工作,那我都贏他們。」朱立倫認為自己得加強網路聲量和取得年輕人的認同。

Regarding his poor performance in the polls, Chu remarked that “Han Kuo-yu, Terry Gou, and Ko Wen-je have more online supporters. However, President Tsai, former premier William Lai, Wang Jin-pyng and I are traditional political figures who have been in the system for a long time.” He added: “Compared to the other four candidates, I have a higher support rate. From now on, I’ll try harder to build my online voice and prove myself to young people that I am a trustworthy leader.”
