Gou Still Undecided on Presidential Bid: Terry Gou's Camp|是否參選總統? 郭辦:郭台銘還在天人交戰
The much-speculated alliance of Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je, former Foxconn CEO Terry Gou and former Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng has not been confirmed. According to the poll figures published on local tabloid Apple Daily, in a scenario where the trio form an alliance and run in the 2020 election, President Tsai Ing-wen would have the most support, followed by KMT's Han Kuo-yu, then comes Ko-Guo-Wang camp.
Many are wondering if former Foxconn CEO Terry Gou will take part in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to the poll figures from Apple Daily, a local tabloid, if Gou joins the race by forming an alliance with Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je and former Legislative Yuan Speaker Wang Jin-pyng, his support rating would fall behind incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen and KMT Candidate, Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu. Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je commented on the dwindling support of the potential alliance, saying that he'll let things play out and there's no need to rush anything, Terry Gou's camp said that Gou is still on deciding whether he will run for president.
No one has announced a candidacy, yet (the potential alliance) still garners more than 20 percent of the voters' support, that seems pretty good. I'll just let things play out since there's no need to rush anything. We need to let (Terry Gou) get ready mentally for something like this, there's no need to rush the matter.
I believe Mr. Terry Gou is still considering the option (of running for president). Therefore, we've been stressing that a decision of this magnitude cannot be easily made. At this point in time, we need to talk about how we can respond to the public's expectations.
Terry Gou's camp said that Gou needs more time to decide on the matter, and that Gou will personally gift moon cakes to Ko's mother and Wang Jin-pyng at the Mid-Autumn Festival. His camp also denied rumors that Gou will announce his exit from the KMT and his bid in the 2020 election.
Are we going to do that (announce Gou's exit from the KMT)? No, not now, and not this way. Whether Gou leaves the KMT will be decided after he announces his decision regarding the 2020 election. We will not respond to rumors of Gou leaving KMT before the matter is settled.
While all eyes are on Terry Gou's next move, a lawyer associated with the KMT went to the Taipei District Court and filed a lawsuit against Gou for fraud and breach of trust. The lawyer said that Gou's potential exit from the KMT for his presidential bid has caused psychological harm and that he is seeking NT$10 billion in compensation. Gou responded by saying that there will be more popping up like this lawyer in the future and that the public needs to see him for who he really is.
