Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Hung Hsiu-chu’s (洪秀柱)
campaign office yesterday announced the organization of a small group of “young” people to defend and promote her campaign pledges on political talk shows.
Voices of young supporters of Hung have long been underestimated on such shows, the office said.
“These young defenders, who were born in the 1970s and the 1980s, aim to shatter the public’s traditional perception of how the KMT runs an election,” Hung campaign office spokesman Lee Chang-chi (李昶志) told a news conference in Taipei.
Chanting “Chu [Hung] has young people’s backs and young people have hers,” the eight members of the group, clad in different colored shirts, told the news conference that the various colors signified the diversity of opinions of younger generations. [FULL STORY]
