【看英文中國郵報學英文】台北市長柯文哲今(1)日對外說明自己組黨的理念及組黨後的未來方針,對於柯文哲組黨一事,總統蔡英文今天在迴廊談話中表示,台灣的民主是台灣最大的資產,「我的責任就是要集結最大的力量,不論是台灣派還是中華民國派,大家都應該要團結起來,共同來守護台灣民主自由,守護台灣的主權」。

In response to Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s (柯文哲) plan to establish a new political party — the Taiwanese People’s Party, President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said on Aug. 8 that democracy is Taiwan’s most valuable asset. “People shall unite and together defend Taiwan’s democracy, freedom and sovereignty,” Tsai added.

蔡英文指出,今年1月2日中國大陸提出的一國兩制台灣方案之後,她一再強調,台灣的民主是不能交換的,中華民國的主權是不能讓渡的,這下我們大家一貫的堅持,呼籲所有的政黨跟政治人物,我們內部是競爭,但是對外是要團結一致來保護台灣的主權與民主。

Following Cina’s proposal to give Taiwan its own version of the “one country, two systems” on Jan. 2 this year,  Tsai has repeatedly emphasized that democracy and sovereignty can not be exchanged and transferred. She, therefore, asked all political parties and politicians to unify to protect Taiwan. 

蔡英文強調,「我的責任就是要集結最大的力量,不論是台灣派還是中華民國派,只要是支持台灣、支持中華民國,支持民主自由的,大家都應該要團結起來,共同來守護台灣民主自由,守護台灣的主權」。

Tsai said that her responsibility (as a president) is to link to various factions regardless of their political stance. She called for solidarity from whoever is supporting democracy and freedom to protect Taiwan sovereignty.
