People’s First Party (PFP) presidential candidate James Soong urged the Kuomintang
and Democratic Progressive Party to work out their political differences for the better of Taiwan, reports said Sunday.
The PFP contender was at Tainan’s Guanziling over the weekend, where he visited the area’s famous Fire and Water Cave, a geological structure known for its unique natural landscape.
“Like fire within the water, and water within the fire, both parties should seek ways to work in mutual harmony,” he said.
Accompanied by former Tainan county commissioner Lee Ya-chiao of the KMT, Soong also compared metaphorically the relationship between the Taipei City government and the City Council with fire and water, in which both local entities have remained in co-existence for the development of Taiwan’s capital.
Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je is expected to be invited to join the PFP at the City Council Monday morning to exchange views and opinions regarding the future developments of Taiwan’s capital city. [FULL STORY]
