Former deputy legislative speaker Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday said that
her absence from a debate organized by pro-reform Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) members for candidates in the KMT’s chairperson by-election was not to dodge questions from young people, adding that she did not attend due to a scheduling conflict.
Hung said the claims that her absence from the event were an attempt to avoid questions from the party’s younger members was not true, adding that she has always been happy to talk to young people and would offer her answers on Facebook later.
She did not participate in the debate because she had to be in Chiayi for an activity that had been scheduled earlier, Hung said. [FULL STORY]
