TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Newly elected President Lai Ching-te announced his decision to leave the New Tide faction of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Wednesday (Jan. 17), moments after the conclusion of the 2024 presidential race.

The office of New Tide issued a statement in agreement with Lai's decision, recognizing that the president is not only the head of state but also bears the responsibilities of leading the government, upholding national policies, and symbolizing party unity.

 

Former legislator Tuan Yi-kang noted that discussions of Lai's withdrawal from the New Tide faction began before the election. Hence, the problem of who initiated the departure is unnecessary to explore. Tuan also personally expressed that it's better for the country for Lai, as president, to no longer be a member of New Tide.

Established in 1983, the New Tide faction is one of the main factions of the DPP. Its primary members are composed of editors and writers from "The Movement" magazine, launched in 1984.

Known for its firm beliefs and strict discipline, the faction is considered the most combat-ready within the DPP. Its four founding members include Chiou I-jen, Wu Nai-jen, Lin Cho-shui, and Hung Chi-chang.
 

The decision of Lai is further highlighted by repeated public criticisms from Ko Wen-je, chairman of the Taiwan People's Party (TPP), who has frequently targeted the issues of corruption and fraud within the New Tide faction.
