People First Party (PFP) presidential candidate James Soong (宋楚瑜)
campaigned in Tainan yesterday, where he pledged to lead the nation out of its difficulties if elected and help it return to prosperity.
Soong began his day by visiting the Chenghuang Temple (城隍廟), where he shook hands and posed for photographs with PFP supporters before entering the temple grounds to offer incense.
In a speech at the Selflessness Pavilion (無私亭), Soong said Tainan was where he began his campaign after he announced his presidential bid last year, adding that he would run the nation with the public in mind, which would honor the venue of his speech.
“I would care for all public affairs, great as well as small, and listen to all voices, including those that are angry or critical,” he said. [FULL STORY]
