The opposition KMT on is calling on its supporters to vote for the party’s candidate, Han Kuo-yu. Taiwan will be holding its presidential and legislative elections on Saturday.


The KMT’s vice chair, Tseng Yung-chuan, says that while People First Party chair James Soong is running as a third-party candidate, Saturday’s election will not truly be a three way race. Soong was a former KMT member but left to start his own party in 2000. Tseng called on all KMT supporters to vote for Han instead of backing Soong.


Han held a rally in front of the Presidential Office in Taipei Thursday. Organizers claim that one million supporters attended. Han has since headed back to the southern city of Kaohsiung, where he currently serves as mayor, for a final rally before polls open.
