Taipei, Dec. 8 (CNA) Opposition Kuomintang (KMT) presidential candidate Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) on Sunday named former New Taipei Mayor Eric Chu (朱立倫) as his chief campaign manager, before Chu and a number of KMT heavyweights jointly backed Han in a New Taipei campaign rally.
The rally was organized in a move to show party unity, a month before the Jan. 11 election day.
During the rally held in New Taipei, Han was joined by KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義), former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), and Chu, who was named earlier in the day as Han's chief campaign manger in charge of campaign strategy nationwide. Chu lost to Han during the opposition party's presidential primary in July. [FULL STORY]
