Tsai faces challenge

TAIPEI, July 15: A populist mayor who favours closer ties with Beijing was named on Monday as presidential candidate for Taiwan's main opposition party as it looks to unseat President Tsai Ing-wen in upcoming elections.
Han Kuo-yu won the primary for the Kuomintang (KMT), comfortably seeing off a challenge from Taiwan's richest man, billionaire Foxconn founder Terry Gou.
His victory sets up an unpredictable clash as Taiwan goes to the polls in January in a contest that will be dominated by relations with China.    -AFP
