TAIPEI, Taiwan — The first televised political platform presentation for the Kuomintang (KMT) chairmanship election is set to begin this afternoon, with all six candidates facing off one another.

Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu chose to not schedule any public events ahead of this afternoon’s presentation. Sources say Hung had been discussing key talking points with aides for the past three days.

Prepping by former Taipei City Mayor Hau Lung-bin’s camp was also reported to be in full swing. According to his office’s statement, Hau will discuss topics such as KMT democratization and youth participation in politics.

Former Vice President Wu Den-yih, largely regarded as the most eloquent speaker of the field, continued to attend public events Saturday. His aides told the Central News Agency that the former vice president was banking on his abundant political experience and did not require his aides to help prepare for the televised event.
