Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu denied she was planning to run beside
Democratic Progressive Party presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen as running mate, adding that she already has her hands tied as campaign manager, reports said Sunday.
Tsai’s national campaign headquarters was inaugurated in Taipei Sunday, as the DPP has rented the first, second, 13th and 14th floors of the Huitai Building, near its headquarters on Beiping E Road in Taipei.
“Let the presidential campaign officially begin,” Chu said in her opening speech.
When asked if she was planning to run beside Tsai next January, Chu said she has no intention to do so as she was re-elected in the local elections last year, affirming that she will fulfill her duties as campaign manager and Kaohsiung mayor. [FULL STORY]
