Taipei, Nov. 16 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party(DPP) will announce former Premier Lai Ching-te (賴清德) Sunday as her running mate for her 2020 re-election bid, DPP sources said Saturday.
The announcement is expected at a press conference scheduled for Sunday morning in Taipei.
Both Tsai and Lai on Saturday attended the inauguration of Tsai's Kaohsiung campaign headquarters, vowing to defend the country's sovereignty and reject the "one country, two systems" principle, formulated by former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping (鄧小平) in the early 1980s.
The principle suggests there is only one China, but distinct regions such as Hong Kong and Macau can provisionally retain their own economic and administrative systems. [FULL STORY]
