At a press conference Saturday, Wang Yu-min (王育敏), head of the KMT's Culture and Communications Committee, denied reports that KMT members with backgrounds in academia and others had been calling on the party's leaders to cut ties with Li.
"The KMT leadership continues to support Li's candidacy, and the party is united in its efforts to get her elected and consolidate the support of KMT voters," Wang said.
For instance, KMT Chairman Johnny Chiang (江啟臣) will attend Li's campaign rally on Saturday, as scheduled, and none of her other campaign activities with elected KMT officials in Kaohsiung have been canceled, Wang said. [FULL STORY]
