Former Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo Yu received an exclusive interview with Zhao Shaokang, chairman of China Broadcasting Corporation, on the 28th, and re-emphasized that he would never run for the 2022 election. In the face of Zhao Shaokang’s inquiry, is there no other idea about politics in the future? Han Guoyu claimed that there are no plans or ideas at all at present. Zhao Shaokang asked again, is it absolutely impossible to run for election in 2024, or should we look at it later? This time, Han Guoyu didn’t say anything to death. He replied that so far, there is no such plan at all, and as for the future, “I don’t know”. In this regard, Wang Dan, a Chinese democracy activist, said bitterly: “I hope that President Han will invest in the 2024 election. Don’t say it again.”
Wang Dan posted on Facebook: “According to Mr. Han’s past performance, saying “I don’t know” about the future means “knowing” the future. I hope Mr. Han will invest in the 2024 election, so don’t say it again. “In addition, for Han Guoyu, he mentioned that he has recently been taking care of his body. Since his body has been worn out a lot in the past three years, he has referenced ancient books. Every morning when he wakes up, he goes to pee first, then goes back to bed after emptying, and spends 2 minutes doing 99 massages around his belly button, which can keep him healthy. This made Wang Dan admire: “I roughly read Mr. Han’s speech, and repeatedly talked about the problem of ‘urinating’. He really deserves to be my Mr. Han!”
In this regard, netizens have left messages sarcastically: “The only person on the surface who can speak such sincerity is probably Mr. Han”, “In 2018, he also said that he had no plan to run for election in 2020. In 2019, he said that he was ready. Take any responsibility”, “He will definitely be elected, and he suddenly jumped out to vote for the president”, “I said 100% that I would not run out of the election for the president of Taiwan, but it turned out to be 100% elected president of Taiwan”, “Maybe at that time. Said that the supporters asked me to come out and run passively.” “If he goes up, the DPP really wins.”
In an exclusive interview with senior media person Huang Guangqin on March 11, 2019, Han Guoyu claimed that the 2020 presidential election was not under consideration. When asked about the term of office? Han Guoyu responded: “Of course I will continue to complete my four-year term, and I will continue to do it.” However, after Hanguo Yu left the radio program, he was asked, “Will the mayor serve for 4 years?” Hanguo Yu was surprised and asked, “Who said that?” and clarified “I said that 2020 is not in my consideration at this stage.” On the 30th of the same month, when asked by the media whether to run for the 2020 presidential election, he impromptuly sang “I insist on not considering 2020”, but then took office to run for the 2020 presidential election, losing 2.64 million votes to his opponent Tsai Ing-wen.
