Taiwan Green Party 2016 Elections: Q&A with Ken-cheng Lee, former Party Co-Chair

In 2012 the Greens received nearly 230,000 votes (1.74%), and this year the Green Party and the Social Democratic Union coalition received 308,000 votes (2.53%). Although there is growth, we were still unable to cross the party vote threshold of 3.5% and the non-constituency (list) threshold of 5%. Pre-election polls had indicated that we could break through, but in the end there was a significant gap between our expectations and the election results. Taiwan's presidential elections this year led to a shift in power from the formerly ruling Kuomingtang party (KMT or Nationalist) to the Democratic People’s Movement (DPP), and the third time in which Taiwan experienced a change in the government party since the end of martial law in 1987. This is an important achievement for a country with a relatively recent transition to democracy. The election outcome is a result of the many social conflicts experienced in Taiwan during the time in which the KMT have been in power, from 2008 to 2016, resulting in clashes between civil society movements and the KMT. Despite the DPP actually contributing little to civil society movements in recent years, the DPP gained the most politically. Read more

這次選舉對台灣很重要的意義是:代表著威權統治的國民黨倒台了,台灣完成了第三次的政黨輪替,對於一個剛起步的民主國家,我覺得這一點是蠻重要的。當然這是因為從2008年到2016年這段時間國民黨執政造成了更大的社會矛盾,蓬勃的公民運動在第一線跟國民黨衝撞角力,是促成這一波政黨輪替的主因。民進黨在這幾年的公民運動中貢獻很少,但卻是政治上最大的受益者。第二個觀察,這是台灣史無前例的政黨票競爭,共有18個政黨,上屆(2012)是11個政黨。 2012的大選,人民對政黨票的理解很少,但這次政黨票競爭激烈,連二大黨都在告急搶政黨票。整體而言,人民對政黨票的了解比上次選舉較多。2012年綠黨拿到了將近23萬票 (1.74%),而這次綠黨社會民主黨聯盟(簡稱綠社盟)拿到了30萬8,000票(2.53%),雖然有成長,但是沒有跨過3.5%的政黨票門檻和5%不分區立委門檻。選前整體的社會氣氛甚至民調都顯示有可能突破,但最後卻沒有,這個結果和我們期待有落差。 我們的支持者使用臉書的比例蠻高的,一些網友開玩笑說我們在臉書上看起來像最大黨,因為在Facebook上到處可以看到支持我們的人。綠社盟在臉書上是比較活躍的社群,而且也是關心環境,關心勞工,關心社會議題的社群。雖然得票不如預期,但相較於2012,我們得到很多來自公民社會組織和社群的支持,到處都可以碰到主動幫我們拉票的支持者。30萬8,000位支持者是綠黨(綠社盟) 後續發展很重要的基礎。 Read more
