Tsai and Hung cam­paign 0.3 km apart in Keelung

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The two ma­jor par­ties’ pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates were both so­lic­it­ing votes in the same area in Keelung yesterday, but did not get to see each other.

At one point, Tsai Ing-wen from the Demo­cratic Pro­gres­sive Party, was pray­ing at the Chin­gan Tem­ple, while the Kuom­intang’s Hung Hsiu-chu was at the Tienchi Tem­ple about 300 me­ters away.

Hung had at­tended a meet­ing of the rul­ing party’s Keelung chap­ter in the morn­ing be­fore go­ing to the north­ern port city’s Miaokou Night Mar­ket, where the two tem­ples are lo­cated.

Hung said it is noth­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary for dif­fer­ent can­di­dates to visit the same area at the same time be­cause ev­ery­one ar­ranges his or her own sched­ule.

Apart from pray­ing at the tem­ple for the wel­fare of the peo­ple, Hung also tasted some del­i­ca­cies at the night mar­ket.

Hung was ac­com­pa­nied on her Keelung trip by KMT Vice Chair­man Hau Lung-bin, who is run­ning for a leg­isla­tive seat rep­re­sent­ing the port city.
