Decisions, Decisions...

From today's headline article on Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) in the Taipei Times:
"On Thursday, Tsai said if she were elected next year, she would seek to end operations at the power plant currently under construction as part of her plan to phase out nuclear energy by 2025..."
A short way down in the same article:
“...The United Daily News purposefully misrepresented [my comments],” Tsai said, adding that her plan was to spark discussion to ensure that operations at the plant do not start against the public’s wishes. The NT$273.5 billion (US$9.28 billion) project would still be completed, she said."
So which is it? Would a Tsai administration cancel the construction of the Longmen plant or not? Would it wait until the plant was completed and then order it to be shut down or stand idle? Would it wait until alternative plants (e.g. coal, gas, wind, solar) were built and then shut the Longmen plant down? Would it keep the Longmen plant, but shut down the other two in Taipei County? Would it put the issue to a referendum?
