Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday
denied she was seeking “immediate unification” with China.
Hung made the remarks during a campaign activity in Tainan.
Hung said that many people have said she is seeking immediate unification because they “are not willing to listen to others rationally.”
“Taiwan cannot be unified [with China] by someone else. If there is unification, it has to be [initiated by the Republic of China (ROC)],” she said.
Hung also rebuffed a rumor about her being replaced as the KMT’s presidential candidate.
“You get executed if you run away from the battlefield. It is not possible for me to become a KMT deserter,” she said.
Hung also visited Tainan’s Chenggong Borough (成功), a military dependents’ village, to pay respects to what is said to be the only bust of former president Chiang Kai-shek (蔣介石) remaining in the city. [FULL STORY]
