James Soong, chair of Taiwan’s minor People First Party and 2016 presidential
candidate, said Tuesday that he does not rule out the possibility of cooperating with other parties.
Soong said better integration is needed not only within the pan-blue camp, where the PFP is aligned with the ruling Kuomintang, but also within all of Taiwan. He said political parties should understand that it is not in Taiwan’s interest to divide the country into two opposing camps. “My door is always open,” Soong said.
The veteran politician said the PFP should work with whatever party has good policies, whether it is the KMT or the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party, whose candidate Tsai Ing-wen is polling far ahead of Soong and the KMT’s candidate, Hung Hsiu-chu. Asked about the possibility of cooperating with Hung, Soong said he “has not ruled out any possibilities.” [FULL STORY]
