Deputy Legislative Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday released a survey p03-150529-a3showing that she has the backing of almost 68 percent of KMT supporters if she is the only potential Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) candidate for the presidential election in January.

Hung released the survey yesterday afternoon, after complaining in the morning that it would be against KMT policy if a poll required as part of the party primary pits her against Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson and presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), as party rules state that it should be a standalone survey to test a candidate’s popularity.

She added that she would like her NT$7 million (US$227,265) back — the fee she paid to join the primary — “if party headquarters has no plans for me to hold policy presentations, so I can do it myself.”     [FULL  STORY]
