With the presidential election approaching, the People First Party has finally decided to jump into the race. On Nov. 13, the party held a general meeting and has decided to formally announce that James Soong will be their presidential candidate. This will also be the fourth time in which Soong tries to run for the presidential seat. Soong described that this election will be the final battle of his political career. As for why he decided to run, Soong says that Foxconn founder Terry Gou's decision to drop out of the race, was key.
The election this time, is the closest to my initial intention. (Running for president) is like the movie - Avengers: Endgame. Everyone knows that James Soong is very far away from being elected. Mr. Terry Gou announced to drop out of the race, so today I especially want to thank his two spokesperson to be here today. If Mr. Terry Gou did not drop out, James wouldn't be standing here. Thank you.
Former chairperson of the United Communications Group, Sandra Yu, will run for vice president. During Soong's speech, he mentioned several times that his intended policies are very similar to that of Terry Gou. Guo's office chief executive officer Amanda Liu, vice chief executive officer Tsai Chin-yu and Taiwan People's Party's secretary-general Chang Jer-yang all attended the event to offer their blessings. Soong now acts as a third force to wager war against the pan-blue and pan-green parties.
