Hung Hsiu Chu ended her retreat and started emphasising ‘sincerity’. Sincerity is what the public expects. In the past, Chen Li-an and James Soong both said it before. No one would oppose this but very few would believe a politician’s (pledge/call for) sincerity.
When I was Premier and called for reconciliation between the government and the opposition and ending the confrontation. At that time, Hung Hsiu-chu did not believe [my intention] and continued to boycott my report in the parliament.
Today, I choose to believe that she truly wants to find sincerity but also hope that she genuinely reflects [on her past behaviour] and makes up [for the harm caused].
‘When I was Premier & asked 2 reconcile, Hung snubbed my report. Today she pledged 2 end confrontation. I hope she reflects on past behaviour’
