Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) yesterday told New Power Party legislative candidate Hung
Tzu-yung (洪慈庸) that it is more important to adhere to her beliefs than to propose policies in the run-up to next year’s legislative election.
Ko made the remark while attending a forum at Hung’s campaign office in Taichung.
Saying that he was at one point a fan of Hung, Ko called on the public to express their support for the “white force” — political novices — to change Taiwan for the better.
Ko praised Hung for managing to remain collected in facing challenges after being confronted with the death of her brother, army corporal Hung Chung-chiu (洪仲丘). [FULL STORY]
