If you don”t, they might fight each other.The president also had some advice for her presidential challenger Han. The Kaohsiung mayor has announced he will be taking time off to campaign. Tsai Ing-wenPresidentI would like to remind Mayor Han Kuo-yu that it was only last year that all these votes – all those high expectations – swept him into the mayor”s office. At this juncture, he must be mindful of all the hopes that rest upon his shoulders. That Han will be setting off from Pingtung, my home county, is not all that surprising.
