Ko more likely to run if Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu wins KMT primaries: reports
By: Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
Ko is reportedly waiting until the main opposition Kuomintang (KMT) has picked its contender for the January 11, 2020 election. The party is in the middle of a contentious opinion poll process to close on July 14.
Media reports suggested Thursday that if Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) won the KMT primaries, it would become more likely that Ko, an independent, would launch a run.
In response to the reports, the capital’s mayor said he was still reflecting on the issue and considering what the nation’s direction should be, the Central News Agency reported.
