TPP’s Ko commits to presidential battle, hints at joint ticket collapse

  • Taiwan People’s Party (TPP) Chairman Ko Wen-je affirmed his commitment to running as the party’s presidential candidate after the TPP and Kuomintang (KMT) failed to reach an agreement on a joint presidential ticket. Speaking to supporters, Ko expressed his dedication to the people’s will and vowed to fight to the end.
  • Ko’s statement suggested his determination to lead the TPP’s presidential bid, raising uncertainties about a potential alliance. The KMT expressed its commitment to continued negotiations with the TPP, seeking a united front against the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
  • Meanwhile, former Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu topped the KMT’s list of legislator-at-large nominations, raising speculation about his role if a KMT-TPP joint ticket fails to materialize.
