Kuomintang presidential candidate Eric Chu denied allegations that he was cutting ties
with President Ma Ying-jeou, stressing that the focus should instead be on efforts to introduce better, improved government policies for the future of Taiwan, reports said Sunday.
In an article published by the Chinese-language Apple Daily earlier this week, TV host Jaw Shaw-kong mentioned that Chu would need to prove that he is more suitable than Hung Hsiu-chu to represent the KMT, and to prove that he is more suitable than the Democratic Progressive Party’s Tsai Ing-wen to assume the position of Republic of China president. More importantly, he would also need to prove that he is not a reflection of Ma.
“Chu has to let the public know that he is a different player,” the article quoted, adding that it would be Chu’s downfall if he followed Ma’s political agenda. [FULL STORY]
