KMT’s brouhaha leaves Ko as miffed as anyone else

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je said he is as miffed as the next spectator with regard to Kuomintang’s recent brouhaha, reports said Thursday.

“Must it be Eric Chu that runs? What about New Taipei then?” Ko responded to reporters when asked about his views on the possible change to Kuomintang’s presidential candidacy.

“What is the KMT up to now?” he said, commenting on a decision that was made by the party’s Central Standing Committee on Wednesday to convene an extraordinary national party congress to discuss Hung’s replacement. The meeting was the latest phase of a sudden escalating rupture between Hung and the KMT leadership.

Ko was at a city planning forum in Taipei to discuss public housing policies when asked about the impact Chu would create on People’s First Party presidential contender James Soong if he were to run next year.

“I’m just as miffed as a general spectator watching the KMT brouhaha on television,” he joked.

Again asked if he approves of Chu’s running, the mayor however refused to comment, adding that only time will tell if he really does run.

In the usual Ko fashion, the mayor became even more agitated when reporters came to shove a myriad of questions to his face.

“Okay, okay….that’s enough….,” he lamented.
