Taipei, Sept. 17 (CNA) Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said he is preparing to run for the presidency in 2024, after being asked by a Taipei city councilor on Thursday.

Alan Lee (李柏毅), who is from the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) party, asked Ko whether he was thinking about running for presidency in 2024 during a Taipei City Council hearing.

In response to the question, Ko said, "I am not thinking (about running for presidency in 2024), I am directly preparing."

Ko then said he thought he would have had a better chance of winning the presidency this year as opposed to 2024, but chose not to run because he had to "take the Taipei Music Center, Taipei Performing Arts Center and Taipei Dome into account."    [FULL  STORY]
