KMT presidential candidate Han Kuo-yu has conceded defeat in the 2020 presidential election. 

 

At around 8:40 pm Saturday, Han appeared onstage at his campaign headquarters to address his supporters. He announced that he had called his rival, the incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen, to congratulate her on her victory. He called on his supporters to remain calm and called on President Tsai to create a future for Taiwan’s people in which they can live in peace and work happily.

 

Han said that he will be returning to his duties as mayor of the southern city of Kaohsiung starting Monday.

 

Meanwhile, KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih says that he is resigning to take responsibility for the defeat.
