Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Hung Hsiu-chu’s (洪秀柱) spokesperson Jack Yu (游梓翔) yesterday said that if People First Party (PFP) Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) joins the race, he would be helping the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secure an easy win.
Soong has remained ambiguous regarding his intent to run, but said that it is the KMT, rather than anyone else, that is leading itself to its doom. The PFP is a KMT splinter group that formed after the 2000 presidential election.
Yu yesterday said on Facebook that he respects Soong, as they both served as heads of the National Chengchi University debate club and that he had worked in Soong’s campaign team.
However, it is impossible for Soong to not know that the DPP would run off with the bone should both the KMT and PFP have candidates in the presidential race, he said. [FULL STORY]
