On January 9, Lin Jingyi, a member of the Democratic Progressive Party, won 51.83% of the votes in the by-election for the legislature of Taichung's second constituency, beating Yan Kuanheng, a member of the Kuomintang. The difference between the two sides in the voting rate is 4.58%, which is more than double the 2.3% that Yan Kuanheng lost to Chen Baiwei in 2020. It stands to reason that in the 2020 general election, the DPP is more powerful (the president won a historically high vote), and Chen Baiwei has just succeeded in his dismissal. How can it lose more? In this regard, many people interpret that the Yan family, who has been deeply involved in the local area for more than 30 years, gradually lost its dominant position in the local area.
And the discussion that extends from this is that another legislator, Chen Yuzhen, who is also a local force, why does he stand still? In fact, Chen Yuzhen's momentum is not only skyrocketed, but even announced that he was considering the Shadow Making position of county magistrate. What are the similarities or differences between Yan Kuanheng and Chen Yuzhen, which caused the former to be seriously threatened, while the latter was able to exchange old wine for new bottles and walk a different path? It's the same: deep family background and controversy emerge one after another The assets of the Yan family and past disputes are definitely the focus of this by-election, and because the by-election is the most important election of the same period, it has appeared on many national pages, such as owning a number of real Estate, companies, occupying state-owned land, father being involved in criminal cases, Arrears, etc., are frequently challenged by opponents. In terms of strength, her family owns many gas stations, clinics, cement businesses, etc. in Kinmen. With abundant funds and a wide industrial footprint, no one knows about it locally.
Chen Yuzhen's father, Chen Shuimu, was also a former speaker and belonged to the Chen clan with the largest surname in Kinmen. Objectively speaking, it is a traditional and powerful local force. And Chen Yuzhen's personal controversies are frequent, in addition to the "Wan'an hug", "Put Lin Chang's trousers pocket", "pinch others", "Taiwan pig incident", etc., which are often discussed on the national page, There are also many local disputes. For example, judging from judicial records, Chen Yuzhen was by the media that she had served social labor for perjury, and she was also sued by her opponents in the past elections for the "Public Officials Conflict of Interest Avoidance Law", and she was suspected of robbing 290 million yuan. engineering. Another example is Chen Yuzhen who said that she has been single for nine years, but in the past, a court ruled that Xu Mingchen intervened in the marriage of artist Fang Fangfang's sister Fang Dian.
