#CHINESE 台湾选举嘉年华考察 联合早报

[中国早点-登台札记]台湾选举嘉年华考察 [中国早点-登台札记]台湾选举嘉年华考察 (2012-01-14) 早报导读 [中国早点] 大势难逆 [时事漫画] 联储局: 美经济增长仅达适中水平 [名家专评] 薛涌:“没用的专业”有用吗? [台湾大选] 台湾总统大选 新北是蓝绿必争之地 ● 赵琬仪中国早点-登台札记   号称台湾史上最激烈的总统大选,今晚成绩揭晓。负责采访的记者在烦恼,外来的观光客也烦恼,大家都在烦恼同一个问题――今晚要到哪个阵营等开票?这个问题的潜在判断是,这场选举,到底谁会胜出。   商业触觉敏锐的香港旅行业者看到香港人关注“双英对决”的热度,将台湾选举发展成为新的旅游产品,还提供实用的温馨提醒,例如,衣服颜色、到哪里观摩台湾选举工程等等。   上个周末,香港康泰旅行社破天荒主办了一个名为“台湾选举嘉年华考察团旅游讲座”,分析台湾选情,为报名参加到台湾观察选举又观光的“双观团”的团员做出发前的准备。   “双观团”,行程只有三天,抵达当天正好参加选前造势大会,第二天(即今天)则安排团员到投票所观摩投票情况,而今晚选举结果出炉将是观摩活动的重头戏。其他的活动时间,和一般的陆客观光团行程无异,参观故宫、忠烈祠仪队交接换哨仪式,初探台湾历史轨迹。   较贴近流行脉搏的行程则是,乘台湾电影《那些年,我们一起追的女孩》风靡香港的热潮,安排了电影拍摄景点的行程,包括参观青桐怀旧车站、平溪放天灯、逛乌来老街等。   “醒目”的香港人也会自己上网做功课,上网掌握双英的扫街行程、个别候选人推出的总统大选纪念品。国民党的“水果平安符”、小英商号的生活用品成了人气“双观”手信。   香港人关注台湾的民主选举的兴趣近年有增无减。台湾选举,政党竞争露骨,情节高潮迭起,人物个性鲜明,选前要防“奥步”,“以强补弱”的估票计算,集合种种刺激因素,剧力万钧比任何一部港剧有过之无不及。当然,观选战也隐含了港人向往民主竞选的投射。   一人一票选出来的领导人,和选民的互动零距离。看到总统马英九到夜市拜票,可以和选民合照,玩自拍,这是台湾民主的平民化魅力。
