TAIPEI (China Post) — Kuomintang heavyweights hosted discussions on June 11 regarding the party’s primary presidential election during which they discussed the role of mobile polls in the selection of the final KMT candidate for the 2020 presidential election.
This symposium kick-started at 10 a.m. with Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou, former New Taipei Mayor Chou Hsi-wei, and the principal of the Sun Yat-sen School Chang Ya-chung in attendance, while Eric Chu and Han Kuo-yu’s teams sent representatives instead.
KMT chairman Wu Den-yih opened the symposium with a speech, expressing KMT’s neutral stance on the poll. After Wu departed, discussions started among the participants.
Gou pointed out that he supports the usage of mobile polls as a factor to determine KMT’s candidate for the presidential election. At the same time, he expected the party to pre-establish more full-fledged policies instead of waiting for obstacles to emerge and then changing policies accordingly. Chou expressed his hope for the entire party to unite and minimalize internal conflicts at this point of the election so that KMT can retake what was lost in the previous presidential election.
