【看CP學英文】前總統府秘書長高雄市長陳菊行蹤去向為何(3)下午原訂監察院長被提名人陳菊將前往立法院拜會立法院長游錫堃行程臨時取消,引起許多人好奇陳菊到底去哪裡了? 

Where is former Presidential Office Secretary-General Chen Chu (陳菊)? The question was on everybody’s lips this afternoon as Chen courtesy’s visit to Legislative Speaker You Si-kun (游錫堃) was canceled on Friday. 

出乎意料地,陳菊人並不在北部與眾多媒體玩躲貓貓。她並未如期與其他26名監委被提名人拜會立法院而是搭上下午451分往南部的高鐵 

Contrary to all expectations, Chen wasn’t playing hide and seek with Taiwan media in northern Taiwan. She took the 4:51 p.m. High Speed Rail train heading to southern Taiwan instead of accompanying 26 candidates of the Control Yuan (監委) to the Legislative Yuan. 

另一方面,國民黨立委團早已集結在立法院的正門口「歡迎」這位具有爭議性的監察院長被提名人。監察院為中華民國政府五權分立體制下行使「監察權」的政府機關,主要負責監督其他四院。 

Legislators from the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) were ready to “welcome” the controversial candidate to become president one of the five branches of power of the Republic of China (Taiwan) — an investigatory agency that monitors the other branches of government. 

陳菊身為總統蔡英文的親信,頻頻受到在野黨施壓,指控蔡英文的人選「酬庸」嫌疑。 

Chen, a confidant of President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), is under pressure from opposition parties who have called her nomination a “blatant political appointment.” 

高雄市長補選日(815日)在即,媒體猜測前高雄市長陳菊週末將出席陳其邁的競選活動。 

With the mayoral by-election in Kaohsiung slated on Aug. 15, Chinese-language media speculated that the former Kaohsiung mayor could join Chen Chi-mai (陳其邁) of the Democratic Progressive Party on his campaign trail over the weekend. 

陳其邁將對上國民黨推派的候選人李眉蓁這位國民黨候選人連任三屆高雄市議員,任職長達十年。她的父親曾任高雄市議員,同時也是被罷免市長韓國瑜的好友。 

Chen Chi-mai is facing Kaohsiung City Councilor Li Mei-jhen (李眉蓁). The KMT candidate is currently serving her third term as a city councilor, a position she has held for about 10 years. Her father is a former Kaohsiung city councilor and close friend of recalled Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜).
