Opposition leadership race widens to four-way contestTAIPEI, Taiwan -- Han Kuo-yu became the fourth candidate for the opposition Kuomintang's (KMT) chairmanship election after making an official announcement this morning in Taipei, Thursday. "The Taiwanese people have lost hope for a long, long time," Han said chastising the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) for its ineffective administration. He added that the DPP's woes had not led to any rise in support for the opposition party, which pointed to how far the KMT had drifted from the people. Only with a healthy opposition party can there be a healthy ruling party," Han declared. Han is currently Chairman of the Taipei Agricultural Products Marketing Co. (TAPM), but submitted his resignation on Wednesday.
