Kuomintang vice presidential candidate Jennifer Wang apologized to party
chairman Eric Chu in the morning over the alleged housing scandal involving her buying and selling of military properties, reports said Thursday.
Wang said during an online press conference that Chu understood the matter and that he has complete faith in her.
“He even apologized for dragging me into the election campaign, urging me to stay strong despite the attacks from opposing parties,” she said, citing that Chu hopes her joining could help him win further support.
Wang was accused of having indulged in real estate speculation by buying and selling military properties. Earlier this week, she had to declare her assets when registering as a candidate in the January 16 election. [FULL STORY]
