Kuomintang Chairman Eric Chu called for unity and teamwork within the KMT in an
effort to compete for majority seats in next year’s legislative elections on January 16, reports said Wednesday.
KMT’s Evaluation and Disciplinary Commission has expelled five members, including a prominent legislator, reportedly for being too critical of the party.
Chu said it is about the right time party members warm up to the upcoming elections, reiterating that to secure a majority stake at the Legislative Yuan next year they must work together to win back voters.
The chairman said he already paid visits to party elders last week, including former chairman Lien Chan, Wu Po-hsiung, Wang Jin-pyng, and among others, and they all concurred with his call for unity. [FULL STORY]
