【看英文中國郵報學英文】時代力量在立法院休會期紛擾頻傳,先後傳出黨內不分區立委高潞·以用跟助理爭執、甚至未利益迴避,以及創黨元老林昶佐因為黨內路線始終無解,選擇退黨,時代力量今(12)日突宣布召開記者會,黨主席邱顯智為近來黨內紛爭負政治責任,辭去黨主席一職。

New Power Party (NPP) Chairperson Chiu Hsien-chih resigned on Monday to take responsibility for the recent turmoil hitting the party, including NPP Legislator Kawlo Iyun Pacidal alleged involvement in a conflict of interest and the departure of party co-founder Freddy Lim.

邱顯智表示,他上任以來,積極想讓黨內不同意見的人坐下來談,去異求同,在堅守台灣主權的基礎上,監督執政黨、扮演第三勢力的腳色,無奈仍發生林昶佐退黨的情況,黨內也有部分人士,質疑他努力不夠。

Chiu said that he launched a discussion among party members with the goal of protecting Taiwan sovereignty, overviewing the ruling party and representing the country’s third political force. Yet, Lim’s decision has left some to become suspicious about his efforts.

此外,高潞·以用未利益迴避,邱顯智指出,高潞是他們不分區第一位,她的事件讓黨內聲譽蒙塵,如今紀律委員會快速做出處置,他身為黨主席,階段性任務已經結束。

Chiu added that Kawlo Iyun Pacidal is one of the top candidates on the NPP’s list, meaning that her alleged involvement in a conflict of interest could destroy the party’s reputation. Since the discipline committee decided on imposing punishment, Chiu said he has finished his mission.

但邱顯智仍強調,辭去主席後,他仍會為了時代力量努力,甚至只要黨有需要,他也會披上戰袍,投入艱困選區。講完後邱顯智便離去,未留給媒體提問的機會。

Still, Chiu said he would continue to work for the NPP despite his resignation, saying that he would run for a seat in the most difficult constituency, if the party needed. Chiu left immediately after the talk and didn’t take any questions from the media.
