Annette Lu drops bid for DPP’s nomination

By Vincent Y. Chao  /  Staff Reporter

Tsai said while canvassing in Chiayi County yesterday that she “admired Lu’s ability to look at the big picture and her concern about unity within the party.”

Lu’s announcement will increase the chances that a deal on who to nominate can be brokered behind closed-doors before Tsai and Su head into the primaries based entirely on telephone polls.

The party is expected to hold at least two more high-level meetings on the issue before it holds the polls between April 25 and April 29. It is understood that informal polls will be held beforehand that will be provided to the two candidates as a reference.

The DPP currently expects that a presidential candidate will be finalized by May 4, if not sooner, pending discussions between Tsai and Su.
