Consensus rift causing public discontentPolls conducted by Taiwan media show that around half of respondents are dissatisfied with Tsai Ing-wen's first 100 days in office and mainland experts said that Tsai's failure to recognize the 1992 Consensus and her "foreign policies" have added to discontent.
According to a poll released by Taiwan-based think tank the Taiwan Style Foundation adidas nmd negras mujer ofertas , 41.2 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied with Tsai's performance, while the figure in a poll conducted by Taiwan-based Apple Daily was 50.49 percent.
In response to the newest polls, "Presidential Office" spokesman Alex Huang said the office will refer to the survey results and promised that the new "government" would do what it can to respond to the people's expectations, China Post reported.
In an interview with SET News adidas nmd negras mujer , Tsai said that the administration is "experiencing adjustments and something is different from the 'election' period," and she regards the drop of support as "ok and normal."
Jin Yi, an expert at the Institute of Taiwan Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times that 100 days may be too short to evaluate political performance but are enough to reveal Tsai's governing style adidas nmd negras hombre , which may cause Taiwan to decline.
According to a July Washington Post interview, when asked whether President Xi Jinping has a certain deadline by which he wants Tsai to agree to the 1992 Consensus, Tsai responded, "It isn't likely that the government of Taiwan will accept a deadline for conditions that are against the will of the people."
Tsai's remarks were believed by experts to be a rejection of the 1992 Consensus adidas nmd negras ofertas , with Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the State Council's Taiwan Affairs Office, telling the media in July that "only by sticking to the 1992 Consensus and its core meaning - that both sides of the Taiwan Straits belong to one and the same China - can the two sides ensure the peaceful and stable development of cross-Straits ties."
Jin said Tsai has disappointed many people by failing to fulfill her promise to maintain cross-Straits relations, which has contributed in a decline in numbers of mainland tourists heading to the island adidas nmd negras , damaging the tourism and catering industry in Taiwan.
Some 300,000 mainland tourists visited Taiwan in July, down 15 percent from the same period last year. Mainland tourists makes up 40 percent of the number of tourists who visit the island every year, the Straits Times reported.
