Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) vice presidential candidate Jennifer Wang (王如玄)
yesterday moved out of a government dormitory in Taipei City’s Daan District (大安), in an attempt to put an end to controversy concerning her real-estate dealings.
Wang addressed reporters waiting outside the dorm on Hangzhou S Road Sec 2, where she and her husband have been living since 2005.
“I have delivered on my promise to move out of the faculty dormitory within 10 days. I have lived here for a long time and have forged close emotional bonds with the building’s security officers,” Wang said.
Asked whether she felt she was being coerced to leave the dormitory, Wang said she was someone who lived in the present and was willing to subject herself to the highest moral standards.
Wang’s relocation came just four days after she pledged to move out of the dorm amid controversy surrounding herself and her husband, Judicial Yuan Department of Government Ethics Director Huang Tung-hsun (黃東焄).
The couple has been criticized for living in a dorm listed as a Taiwan High Prosecutors’ Office unit that allegedly costs NT$2,000 per month to rent, while owning at least one military apartment. [FULL STORY]
