Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全), currently the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) Central Committee secretary-general, will reportedly be his party’s nominee for Taiwan’s vice presidency in the presidential elections in January next year. He would be DPP presidential nominee Tsai Ing-wen‘s (蔡英文) running mate against incumbent president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) and his running mate Wu Den-yih (吳敦義), both of the KMT.
Also reportedly, former executive yuan chief (usually referred to as prime minister in English) Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) had previously rejected Tsai’s offer to run for Taiwan’s vice presidency.
An official announcement is expected on Friday (today GMT).
