(CNA, By Wang Shwu-fen and Ko Lin) Kaohsiun Mayor Han Kuo-yu stated on Monday that he will only run for the presidential race if the Kuomintang (KMT) "recruits" him to take part in the KMT's primary for next year's presidential election. Han further remarked that Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je has the best chance of winning the 2020 presidential election should both the KMT and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) continue to be divided internally. <Accessed 2019-05-14>
