Nov 26, 2018 Business & Finance Comments Off on Former premier considering run for presidency as an independent
Taipei, Former Premier Chang San-cheng (???), who advised Kuomintang candidates in the recent local elections, is considering whether or not to run in the presidential election in 2020 as an independent.
The 64-year-old Chang, who now serves as chairman of the Taiwan Mobile Foundation, made the revelation Monday.
He told CNA that the idea of seeking the presidency came while stumping for some candidates running in Saturday's local government elections and having people asking him to run for office in the next presidential election in 2020.
Considering himself as a down-to-earth kind of person, he has begun thinking about the possibility, Chang said.
Chang served as premier in the Ma Ying-jeou (???) administration from Feb. 1, 2016 to May 20, 2016 after the KMT suffered a bruising defeat in the presidential election in January.
Before that, he had been vice premier since Dec. 7, 2014.
