PFP Denies Wang's Claim Soong Wants Him As Running Mate|親民黨:宋楚瑜副手人選 不找政治人物

Now many have been waiting to see if former Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng and People First Party leader James Soong will join hands to contest the presidential election. Wang confirmed that he had rejected the offer to be Soong's running mate while he still hasn't got the nomination he needed, as the election is less than two months away. Wang said he will fight to the end.

According to reports, former Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng announced during a Kuomintang gathering on the 7th that he had met twice with People First Party Chair James Soong. Wang, who is desperately looking for a way to run for president after failing to get the KMT nomination, initially thought the PFP nomination was his. Unfortunately for him, Soong changed his mind this week.

(Wang Jin-pyng) did in fact tell everyone the People First Party offered him its presidential nomination. (Wang said) the PFP later changed its mind and offered him the vice presidential nomination. (Wang said) he rejected the offer.

(Chairman Soong doesn't want to nominate you anymore.) (Are you still going to run?) You knew he wouldn't give you (the nomination).

Wang declined to comment on Soong's flip-flop, but his office has issued a press release saying Wang will fight to the end. The statement also said Soong has asked Wang to be his running mate, but Wang has not agreed. In response, the People First Party confirmed Soong has told Wang he is willing to work with him on some level, but Soong does not want a politician for a running mate.

At the end of October, (James Soong) probably asked Wang about the possibility of maybe collaborating. Did (Soong) offer (Wang) the nomination? I wasn't there, so I really don't know. (Soong) was probably clear about (the vice president nomination) as well. He's (not interested) in a current politician (for a running mate).

Chang Shuo-wen says Soong is open to a female running mate. The election is just two months away, but Soong appears to be in no rush to formally announce a presidential bid.

2020總統大選進入倒數階段,握有"參選門票"的親民黨會怎麼用、外界關注,傳出有意爭取參選的前立法院長王金平7日在國民黨團餐敘中透露曾和親民黨主席宋楚瑜見了兩次面,原本以為可以順利拿到門票參選,未料宋楚瑜卻在這週變卦。

國民黨立委 賴士葆表示:「(王金平)確實有講說,本來親民黨是要給他選總統,後來變成是選副總統,那他不接受。」

國民黨立委 王金平(108.11.7.)表示:「(宋主席沒有要給你門票了,你還要再選下去嗎?) 你又知道他不會給?」

對於宋楚瑜"撕門票說",王金平說不便評論,不過7日晚間王金平辦公室發出新聞稿,標題仍用參選到底,證實宋楚瑜邀請當副手,但沒答應。親民黨也證實,宋楚瑜有跟王金平表達合作意願,但對於副手人選,卻說不會找政治人物。

親民黨組織部主任 張碩文表示:「十月底的時候主席(宋楚瑜),應該有表達一個如果,王院長是不是願意一起合作,有沒有給門票因為我不在場,所以我真的不知道這個事情,(副手人選)應該也有一個,很明確的方向,不是現在政治界的人士。」

張碩文表示,親民黨樂意找女性當副手,由於宋楚瑜至今尚未正式宣布參選,宋王配似乎無法成局,2020總統大選進入倒數階段,是否出現第三組人馬,親民黨不急著表態,外界卻風聲不斷。
