Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairman Eric Chu (朱立倫) yesterday said that
presidential candidate Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) is still part of the KMT family, but declined to comment on his reported intention to join the presidential race.
“I have said yesterday [Wednesday] that we are all part of a family. We should communicate with each other, endeavor to forge a consensus and seek victory through party solidarity,” Chu said when asked to comment on a story shared by Hung on Facebook on Wednesday evening.
Chu also admitted he has not made enough effort in his capacity as party chairman, pledging to step up communication with Hung.
Hung shared “A Story about a Horse and a Donkey,” just hours after the KMT Central Standing Committee presided over by Chu unanimously passed a motion to hold an extempore party congress aimed at replacing Hung as the party’s presidential candidate. [FULL STORY]
