Kuomintang Chairman and presidential candidate Eric Chu remarked during a radio talk
show Monday morning that Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng is not unhappy, stressing there was no tension or misunderstanding between them.
Chu downplayed speculations that the two have gone their separate ways as they have not been seen together during the party’s campaign efforts in the last few weeks.
“The presidential election is still two and a half months away, whether Wang chooses to join in on our campaign is a matter of personal decision,” he said.
When asked if he perceives Wang as an ally or a foe, Chu said there was no discrepancy between them, as he has always viewed and respected the political senior.
Chu denied any discord with Wang, and that the friction the latter has (or had) with former president Lee Teng-hui, PFP Chairman James Soong or President Ma Ying-jeou is an issue that remains between the elders. [FULL STORY]
