While People First Party (PFP) Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) is yet to announce a
presidential bid, the party’s legislative candidates are eager to use campaign billboards with photographs of them posing with Soong to boost their electoral prospects.
PFP Deputy Secretary-General Liu Wen-hsiung (劉文雄), who is running for a legislative seat in Keelung, said he had a photo shoot with Soong two weeks ago and would put up boards featuring the photographs as soon as Soong announces his candidacy next month.
Former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator Chang Sho-wen (張碩文), who withdrew from the KMT and is competing in New Taipei City’s Sanchong District (三重) for the PFP, said he is looking for places to put campaign posters.
Chang said he would first put up posters with only his image, while billboards with Soong would go up later, as they need more space. [FULL STORY]
