Taipei City Councilor You Shuhui said that every time the DPP "forms a cabinet", it is a plan to help the "unemployed" find jobs.
She believes that Chen Jianren does not have the ability and power to "form a cabinet" at all, and in the end it is still the faction to divide the spoils and "Xiaoying will".
KMT Taipei City Councilor Xu Qiaoxin said bluntly that the vaccine controversy was the reason for the DPP’s big defeat in the election last year, but now that the Tsai authorities have re-formed a cabinet, they have placed the people who escorted high-end vaccines in high positions, which shows that there is no review or reflection at all.
In addition, "plagiarism" is also an important reason for the DPP's defeat in the election last year. Both Chen Jianren and Zheng Wencan were suspected of plagiarism. Obviously, the DPP does not regard plagiarism as one of the reasons for its defeat in 2022.

The newspaper's editorial believes that Tsai Ing-wen is well aware that the "nine-in-one" election has proved that the "anti-China protection Taiwan" card is invalid. Except for Chen Jianren, who needs to advance and retreat, she has no cards to play.
