Nearly 60 percent of Kaohsiung residents disapprove of Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu’s (韓國瑜) decision to run for president and more than half support holding a vote to recall him, a poll released yesterday by the Green Party Taiwan found.

The poll, for which 1,009 residents aged 20 and older were interviewed on Sunday, found that 58.4 percent disapprove of Han running for president, compared with 32.5 percent who approve.

Amid a coalition of civic groups collecting signatures for a petition to launch a recall vote against Han, a total of 53.8 percent of respondents said that they support the campaign, while 33 percent opposed it.

While 27.1 percent said that they planned to attend the recall march, 8.9 percent said that they would join a march organized by Han on the same day to celebrate his first anniversary as mayor.

As more than half of the respondents expressed support for recalling Han, “there is a great chance that Han could become the first mayor of a special municipality to be recalled in [the nation’s] history,” Taoyuan City Councilor Wang Hao-yu (王浩宇) said.
