Taipei, Dec. 14 (CNA) Cabinet Secretary-General Cho Jung-tai (卓榮泰) has been
nominated by a group of young Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) members to run for the chairmanship of the party.
The group, led by Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦), on Thursday put forward Cho’s name, saying they will accompany him Friday afternoon to register as a candidate at the DPP’s headquarters in Taipei.
Cho, 59, could not be reached for comment on the issue.
If he accepts the nomination for the Jan. 6 election, he will be competing for the leadership of the DPP against the party’s former secretary-general You Ying-lung (游盈隆) and Kuo Tai-ling (郭泰麟), who was deputy chief of the now-defunct Kaohsiung County.
