There’s a battle underway in the southern city of Kaohsiung. A fight to remove the city’s mayor, Han Kuo-yu, has mobilized both sides to action. A recall vote is scheduled for June 6. With less than a month to go, pro-Han ads featuring city residents who support the mayor have begun popping up.
An opposition party city councilor, from the DPP, says that the campaign is backed by Han’s party, the KMT. He says the ads are dishonest and mislead the public. But the KMT says that there’s no reason why they can’t help publicize an event that’s legal.
On the other side of the vote, the anti-Han camp is taking to the streets to pass out flyers.
