TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Kuomintang candidate Eric Liluan Chu commented
Wednesday on allegations that he was President Ma Ying-jeou 2.0 and Democratic Progressive Party presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen was a female version of Ma.
Since Chu replaced Legislative Vice Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu as the ruling party’s presidential contender last Saturday, accusations have been leveled at him that he is nothing more but a new version of the incumbent president.
Recording a TV interview Wednesday, Chu replied to the comparisons by saying he was more realistic and practical in facing the issues, while Tsai liked to remain vague. [FULL STORY]
