Chen Jianren handled the controversial incident very clearly, in line with democratic politics and responsible politics; Controversy makes people feel bad, and it will not be conducive to the implementation of administrative affairs.

Will the turmoil affect the presidential election?

You Xikun said that since he is the head of the Legislative Assembly, it is inconvenient to talk about the election.

As for whether you will worry about similar cases breaking out again?

You Xikun believes that there is no perfect person, no perfect political party, and no perfect cabinet. When problems, disputes, or mistakes arise, the ability to reflect, admit mistakes, and apologize is the most important thing and the most valuable part of democratic politics.
