Taipei, Jan. 15 (CNA) Eric Chu (朱立倫), the presidential candidate of the 22279984ruling Kuomintang (KMT), on Friday called for solidarity within the pan-blue camp.

Speaking passionately in the election-eve rally held in a stadium in New Taipei, where he is the mayor, he said that he wanted to say to the good friends of the People First Party (PFP) and the New Party that “over the past 20 years, whenever we were divided and not united, we failed.”

Amid the drizzle, Chu implored thousands of supporters to unite to support him and the KMT, noting that both political parties had originally splintered from the KMT.

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) also attended the Taipei rally to lend his support.

He bowed to all to solicit support for Chu and cited what the KMT has achieved over the years.     [FULL  STORY]
