The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) picked an inappropriate and inexperienced presidentialcandidate, which could cost the party the Jan. 11 race, People First Party (PFP) Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) said yesterday.
“[Kaohsiung Mayor] Han [Kuo-yu (韓國瑜)] has neither the qualities nor the administrative experience to win the election,” Soong told political commentator Lan Hsuan (蘭萱) on her morning radio talk show.
Selecting Han as the KMT’s candidate was like “asking someone who cannot drive to drive on the freeways” or “asking someone who has never flown an airplane to operate an aircraft,” said Soong, who is also running for president.
The public should not trust their lives or the nation’s future to Han, he said. [FULL STORY]
