Head of Foxconn announces Taiwan presidenti­al bid


Terry Gou, the head of the world’s largest electronic­s supplier, Foxconn, says he is planning to run for president of Taiwan. Gou announced Wednesday that he would be putting himself up as a hopeful in the opposition Nationalis­t Party primary ahead of next year’s election. The Nationalis­ts favor closer ties with Beijing, a policy that accords with Gou’s massive business interests in China. Candidates are expected to face a crowded field in the 2020 polls, in which President Tsai Ing-wen of the pro-independen­ce Democratic Progressiv­e Party says she will seek a second four-year term.
