Taipei, May 5 (CNA) Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) of the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) defended himself against a recall vote, scheduled to take place in early June.

In a written defense released by the Central Election Commission (CEC) Tuesday, Han listed 15 achievements since he took office in December 2018, including how his administration pushed for investment to increase new jobs for the city, saying that "he will brave the storms and move ahead."

In his 5,600 word defense, Han said that through the efforts of his administration to boost the tourism industry in the city, a business group from the United States submitted an application in January to team up with Kaohsiung to develop a "Love Ferris Wheel" project in the city.

During his mayoral campaign, Han had promoted the "Love Ferris Wheel," which is planned to be built by the city's Love River side, as a landmark and attraction for tourists to Kaohsiung.    [FULL  STORY]
