Tensions were high yesterday at a youth forum attended by the four Chinese
Nationalist Party (KMT) chairperson candidates, with party reform and cross-strait issues hotly debated.
Seizing an opportunity to campaign ahead of the KMT’s chairperson by-election, which is scheduled for Saturday, KMT Acting Chairperson Huang Min-hui (黃敏惠), former deputy legislative speaker Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱), KMT Legislator Apollo Chen (陳學聖) and Taipei City Councilor Lee Hsin (李新) all attended the forum held by the Association for Cross-Strait Public Affairs at the legislature.
Hostility began to build up even before the forum started. Lee wanted to sit next to Hung, who said to him: “I do not want to sit with you. I am going to teach you a lesson later.”
Hung then moved to a different seat after Lee ignored her opposition and sat next to her anyway. [FULL STORY]
