On Sunday morning, KMT secretary general Lee Shu-chuan announced that the party’s only
candidate for the 2016 presidential primary, Hung Hsiu-chu, had passed the party’s 30% threshold for the primary polls with an average approval rating of 46.203%. The result was an average taken from three polls measuring her approval rating when running alone and also against opposition Democratic Progressive Party leader and presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen.
Hung, deputy head of the Legislative Yuan, thanked her supporters at a press conference shortly after the announcement, saying the successful poll result was just the first step in her journey but has given her the confidence and courage to keep going.
Hung asked that everyone take more time to learn about what she is doing and said she herself needs to take more time to listen to the voices fo the public, adding that she does not fault her detractors for calling her pro-Beijing because they do not understand who she is and what she stands for.
