Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Johnny Chiang (江啟臣) yesterday registered for theparty’s chairmanship by-election on March 7 to replace former chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義).
Wu resigned last month after the party’s defeats in the Jan. 11 elections.
Chiang, who won re-election for a third term last month, told reporters at KMT headquarters in Taipei that many people have questioned whether the party should “re-discuss or adjust” its cross-strait stance.
“If I am elected party chairperson, the necessary discussion or debate are things that should be done,” he said. “Every proposition, if I am the party chairperson, I would need to respect.”
