Ko's Camp to Help Gou Collect Signatures|柯文哲陣營表態 全力幫郭台銘衝刺連署

Foxconn Group founder Terry Gou has withdrawn from the Kuomintang, and there are rumors he is set to launch a presidential bid. Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je's camp appears to be willing to assist Gou in collecting the signatures required for a presidential bid, and an alliance between Gou, Ko, and former Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng could materialize shortly. However, there are also reports that Gou and Ko have marginalized Wang and the latter intends to seek the nomination of the People First Party to realize his presidential aspirations.

Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je spent the morning of the Mid-Autumn Festival worshipping at a temple in New Taipei City. Foxconn Group founder Terry Gou withdrew from the Kuomintang on Sept. 12 and may launch a presidential bid shortly. Ko said he will help Gou in his presidential bid.

(Are you willing to don a vest and collect signatures for him at convenience stores?) I don't need to, I'll just fill in one for him. I always say to let nature take its course, and that means we'll wait until he formally announces he is running or registers to take care of matters.

We are currently assessing whether we can transfer (signature collection points) to Chairperson Gou.

Ko's camp said it will go all out to help Gou collect signatures, which is a sign that an alliance between Gou, Ko, and former Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng may materialize. However, there are also reports that Ko and Gou have pushed aside Wang, and Wang is so discontent at being marginalized that he ran to the People First Party to seek its presidential nomination.

Wang Jin-pyng remains a very important… let me tell you, I don't think there is anyone else with more political connections than him in the Taiwan of today. No one has said he is definitely going to do this, so why would you create difficulties for yourself and others?

Ko was accompanied by Feng Chia University assistant professor Kimyung Keng and Democratic Progressive Party member and Taipei City Government adviser Chang Hsing-sung during his Mid-Autumn Festival temple visit. Both are expected to join Ko's Taiwan People's Party and seek legislative seats. The appearance of the three together was compared to a mother hen guiding her chicks.

Everyone is just out here together today, there's nothing more to it. We already spoke with them and they are willing to run. The Taiwan People's Party has not yet been formally established because there is a process that must be followed.

Ko said the party has not yet been established, and its platform has not yet been decided. However, he has already consulted with many people about running as representatives of the party. There are still two months before registration begins, and the party will not limit itself to only nominating 10 legislative candidates or only to Taipei City seats.

台北市長柯文哲中秋節一早到中和烘爐地福德宮參拜,由於鴻海集團創辦人郭台銘大動作宣布退出國民黨,參選2020態勢更趨明朗,柯文哲表態,自己一定會幫郭台銘簽連署書。

台北市長 柯文哲表示:「(你有意願穿著那個背心,在便利商店幫忙連署?) 我,不用啦,我幫他填一張就好,我每次說順其自然是什麼意思,就是說,你也等人家,等他真的宣布他要參選,或是去登記了,我們再處理。」

台北市政府顧問 蔡壁如表示:「我們現在也是在做轉換的動作,看能不能把它(連署點),轉給郭董那邊來做一個連署。」

柯陣營表態,要全力幫郭台銘衝刺連署,郭柯王聯盟看似將有實際動作,不過現在也傳出,郭柯排擠前立法院長王金平,王金平不滿被邊緣化,可能會尋求親民黨支持,披橘袍參選總統。

台北市長 柯文哲表示:「王金平還是很重要的一個,其實我跟你講,當今台灣政治人脈,我看沒有人可以贏他,人家也沒有說什麼他一定要怎樣,何必要去跟人家,何必去製造自己的困擾,也製造別人的困擾。」

柯文哲中秋參拜,身邊還有逢甲大學學者何景榮,及仍是民進黨籍的台北市政顧問張幸松,兩人異口同聲有意加入民眾黨參選立委,三人合體也被解讀是柯文哲母雞帶頭衝。

台北市長 柯文哲表示:「大家一起去郊遊就這樣,我們都跟他們談過,他們是有意願要出來選的,整個民眾黨還沒有正式去成立,還是要走一個程序。」

柯文哲表示,民眾黨還沒正式成立,黨綱也還沒寫好,但已徵詢過不少人,也都有意願參選,離報名截止還有兩個月,將慢慢號召,民眾黨不會只提名10席區域立委,也不會只鎖定台北市。
