Ko Comments on Gou's Support for Huang as Mayor|郭台銘力拱黃健庭參選北市長 引發關切
Hon Hai founder Terry Gou has thrown his support behind former Taitung County Magistrate Justin Huang running for Taipei City mayor. Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je says if he has the chance, he will try to meet with Huang and get to know this person. In response to questions on whether he intends to support Huang as well, Ko didn't say much.
At one point, Hon Hai founder Terry Gou had his sights set on former Taitung County Magistrate Justin Huang as a running mate. Since withdrawing from the presidential election, Gou has said Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je will retire in two years and Huang should run for mayor in 2022. In response, Ko said he will try to meet with Huang and get to know him if he has time.
In our private conversations, (Terry) Gou has mentioned (Justin Huang), saying he is an excellent administrator. I told him I had looked into Huang's (administrative) record and he performed pretty well when he was Taitung County magistrate. That's the whole story, OK? I have told Gou that if I have the chance opportunity, I will meet with (Huang) and get to know this person.
Taipei City Councilor Huang Shan-shan of the People First Party will soon assume the post of vice mayor and is regarded as a potential Ko successor. In related news, President Tsai Ing-wen has accused one of Ko's advisors, Tsai Pi-ju, of spreading fake news after Tsai Pi-ju posted on Line that the London School of Economics says Tsai Ing-wen never submitted a thesis.
They're making a mountain out of a molehill. Tsai Pi-ju posted some information on Line and it turns into headline news? If you apply the same standard, every media outlet in Taiwan can make "Ko Wen-je Smiled and Shrugged" its top headline today.
As for Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Wu's recent assertion that ROC-US relations are the best they have been in 40 years, Ko said the Tsai administration should refrain from overrelying on either the US or China.
No one is denying that ROC-US relations are very good right now, but at the same time no one is denying that Taiwan-Mainland relations are the worst they have been in 30 years. I think (Taiwan) should find a balance between China and the US. I wouldn't put all my eggs in one basket.
Ko also commented on Han Kuo-yu taking a three-month leave of absence to focus on his presidential campaign, saying a candidate will only face trouble ahead if he gets the first step of his campaign wrong.
由於親民黨台北市議員黃珊珊將任副市長，被視為柯文哲接班人，"雙黃"是否演變成競爭局面，受到關注。至於被視為柯文哲心腹的北市府顧問蔡壁如，被爆出在LINE群組，發文「英國 LSE 否認蔡英文有提交論文」，被蔡總統回擊是假訊息，柯文哲也連忙緩頰。
