The Kaohsiung City Government yesterday said in a statement that Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) is not a political pundit and that his ridicule of other local governments would not make them work any better.

The statement was in response to a remark Ko made on Sunday in a speech at Ku Ting Christ Presbyterian Church.

“I do not think handling politics is that difficult. Just do the right things and do not do the wrong things,” he said.

“I cannot help mentioning the Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program again,” Ko said. “If you are doing something wrong, it is going to fail no matter how hard you work at it; it does not matter how much money or effort you throw at it.”
