Several senior members of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday attended a memorial service in Taipei for late former premier Hau Pei-tsun (郝柏村), who died on March 30 at the age of 100.

KMT Chairman Johnny Chiang (江啟臣), who serves as KMT chairman, former New Taipei City mayor Eric Chu (朱立倫), former Kaohsiung mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) and former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) were among those who attended the service.
