Gou and Chu Exchange Words Before Primary Poll|藍總統初選民調今晚展開 郭朱韓全力衝刺
The Kuomintang's presidential primary poll began at 6:30 p.m. July 8. This morning, former Hon Hai Chair Terry Gou lost his temper during a radio interview over his refusal to sign the party's primary pledge. He called on the KMT to explain the situation. Gou also stressed reports that he could withdraw from the party to run as an independent were a "red herring". Meanwhile, Former New Taipei City mayor Eric Chu, said Gou shouldn't be able to overlook the rules just because he is a political novice. He also expressed his willingness to meet with Gou face-to-face for a conversation.
So, I completely severed ties with Yang Chiu-hsing. I said, "Don't contact me again."
During a radio interview on the 8th, former Hon Hai Chair Terry Gou first denied any relationship with Yang Chiu-hsing and then said he had nothing to do with Yang's recent criticisms of Han Kuo-yu. Gou later lost his temper when the conversation turned to speculation that he was refusing to sign the Kuomintang's presidential primary pledge, saying he has always said he will sign it. He called on the KMT to clarify the matter and said the KMT should ask all candidates to sign the pledge together. Gou also said the KMT would be treating him unjustly if it didn't do this.
First of all, I call on the Kuomintang to hurry up and make a signing board. There's still time today and tomorrow for everyone to sign together. If the KMT has certain concerns and can't sign it, then you, the KMT, have to explain why. Otherwise, you are treating me unjustly. As for the speculation that I will leave the party and run as an independent, you should ask the KMT about that. The KMT should be the one leading the way to unity and victory, but it isn't doing this. I want to ask Vice Chair Tseng Yung-chuan to for a response. He must provide a response.
Gou also denied public sentiment that the KMT has thrown its full support behind him, saying the idea of him leaving the party to run as an independent is a red herring. Former New Taipei City Mayor Eric Chu, meanwhile, said Gou cannot expect to be exempt from the rules just because he is a political novice. Chu also called on Gou to cut his meaningless talk and clarify his policy for Taiwan's declining birth rate.
However, I have to inform (Terry) Gou that politicians must follow the rules. You can't flout the rules just because you are a political novice. We can have conversations on policy, but all the meaningless talk should stop.
Chu said he is the candidate that stands up to scrutiny the most and the candidate the Democratic Progressive Party fears the most. Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu, meanwhile, hosted a livestream with lawmaker Hsu Shu-hua on the 7th. During the broadcast, Han detailed his platform and also clarified the proper procedure for answering poll calls. The poll will commence on the evening of the 8th.
