Hon Hai Precision Industry Co (鴻海集團) chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘) yesterday said
that he would make a decision in the next couple of days on whether to run for president in next year’s election.
Gou made the remarks on the sidelines of the Indo-Pacific Security Dialogue in Taipei.
Asked whether he is mulling a presidential campaign, Gou said that he barely slept on Monday night, as next year’s presidential race is a critical one and could decide the next two decades of Taiwan’s politics, economics and national defense.
“I asked myself this all of last night: It would be unnecessary if I am only seeking to occupy the top office, but if I am here to get things done, what are the things I am going to do?” Gou said. [FULL STORY]
