Sean Lien wins KMT's primary for Taipei mayoral election | Politics | FOCUS TAIWAN - CNA ENGLISH NEWS
Taipei, April 19 (CNA) Sean Lien, the son of former Vice President Lien Chan, won the ruling Kuomintang’s (KMT’s) primary on Saturday to become the party’s candidate for the mayoral election in Taipei in November.
A completely unshocking turn of events that almost everyone predicted. When it comes to The Party - there really are very few surprises. These kinds of things are agreed long in advance, in Lien’s case probably way before he was even shot (by a disgruntled KMT member).
Can Lien win? Now that’s something we probably won’t know until the evening of the election.
