CNA: Taipei Mayor says he will run new party ‘economically’

As to whether Gou will provide financial assistance for the TPP, Ko did not reply directly to the question, saying only that his team has found a way to run election campaigns in an “economical way” and will apply that to the TPP operations.

He did not elaborate.

The Taipei mayor also took a swipe at the KMT and the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), claiming that the two major political parties have already spent hundreds of millions on the upcoming election.

“Taiwan cannot improve if a presidential candidate has to spend a hundred million Taiwan dollars on an election,” Ko said, adding that he hopes to change the political culture in Taiwan through running an election campaign that does not cost a lot.
