TAIPEI (TVBS News)—Taiwanese people from near and far gathered early Monday (May 20) to witness Taiwan's 16th presidential inauguration. Some passersby near 228 Peace Memorial Park voiced their expectations and concerns for the new presidential team and the country's development.

Tseng Yi-ting, an environmental advocate, noted the delays in passing critical environmental acts and the serious issues of garbage mountains. She emphasized the need for swift progress, stating, "I hope the new government can continue to bring even faster advancements in various areas, including the environment, national security, women's and children's rights, and human rights."

 

Addressing economic disparities, another interviewee, Hong Yu-wen, remarked, "The wealth gap is too large. Many people may need to side hustle to sustain their livelihoods due to low wages." Concerns about rising costs echoed this sentiment, with Hong urging the government to tackle inflation and improve the social safety net for all.

Chen Ting-yu, reflecting on the importance of unity in leadership, expressed, "I really hope for peace first and to hold the ground. We're Taiwan but we don't provoke fights." Chen lauded Tsai's administration, which she believes has been a great example of "working with different opinions," sincerely hoping that during this pivotal transition, Lai Ching-te can navigate the challenges of his party being the minority in the Legislative Yuan and unite all parties.

Amid uncertainties, there is a collective hope for a presidency that prioritizes unity, progress on environmental and societal issues, and effective governance. As Taiwan embarks on a new chapter, the eyes of the nation are fixed on the leadership's ability to navigate the complexities and steer the country towards a stable future.
