 Wu Sets Keynote for KMT Primary

The draft “special rules concerning the KMT 2020 Presidential primary” is slated to officially be submitted to the KMT Central Standing Committee (CSC) on May 15. On May 4, KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) clearly stated that hopefuls who entered the KMT primary, whether on their own initiative or in a passive manner, must pay a fee for primary expenses (mainly for opinion polls), register for the primary, and participate in presentation of campaign planks.

According to Wu, the fee for primary expenses was temporarily set at NT$5 million (approx. US$162,000) per hopeful. When asked whether it would be acceptable for fans of Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) to pay the fee for Han, Wu answered that of course, if they got a letter of proxy from Han.

According to the KMT’s current plans on the draft of its special rules and directions for the 2020 presidential primary, a Nomination Coordination Group, authorized by the KMT CSC, will verify and promulgate a list of hopefuls, whether entering the KMT primary on their own initiative or in a passive manner. At the current stage, the six hopefuls include Han Kuo-yu, Terry Gou (郭台銘), Eric Chu (朱立倫), Wang Jin-pyng (王金平), Chou Hsi-wei (周錫瑋), and Chang Ya-chung (張亞中).

The KMT primary, slated for early July, will be decided 100% by the results of opinion polls. The one with the highest support rating would be the winner and be nominated as the KMT standard bearer by the KMT National Party Congress, scheduled for July 28.
