Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday vowed to make an all-out effort to retain the KMT’s control of New Taipei City in the 2018 municipal elections, while setting the party’s sights on taking back as many administrative regions as possible.
Hung made the remarks at the swearing-in ceremony of former Ministry of National Defense Reserve Command deputy chief of staff Lee Ming-teng (李銘藤) as the director of the KMT’s local branch in New Taipei City.
“At a time when the KMT is faced with many predicaments, subjected to public ridicule and looked down upon by others, we must deliver more stellar achievements,” Hung said.
Hung said she has a special emotional connection with New Taipei City, where she served as director of the women’s working committee at the KMT’s local branch for seven years. [FULL STORY]
