Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫)
yesterday canvassed the streets of Tainan, seizing the last Sunday before Saturday’s presidential and legislative elections to solicit votes in the traditional pan-green camp stronghold.
Accompanied by KMT legislative candidates Chen Shu-hue (陳淑慧) and Lin Yi-huang (林易煌), who are competing in Tainan’s fourth and fifth constituencies respectively, Chu began his procession in the city’s Yongkang District (永康), the hometown of his wife, Kao Wan-chien (高婉倩).
“We will make a maximum effort campaigning in our most challenging electoral constituency. I believe the many young and promising [legislative] candidates the KMT nominated will also fight until the last minute,” Chu said when asked how the KMT planned to boost its election prospects in a city dominated by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
