TAIPEI, Taiwan — In a sign of cementing Kuomintang (KMT) unity, Deputy Legislative Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) agreed to cooperate with presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) by serving as the chief advisor in his election campaign.
Last night Chu paid a visit to Hung’s residence at 7 p.m. for an hour-long closed-door meeting before the two jointly emerged in front of the media.
It was the first time the two have appeared together publicly since Hung’s candidacy was formally replaced by Chu’s in an October interim party congress.
The two showed up hand-in-hand last night, dispelling doubts that their relationship has been in the cold.
With Hung standing on the side, Chu told the media that he really admires Hung’s effort. She always has the party’s interest in mind, and never thought for herself, the KMT chairman said. [FULL STORY]
