“For that reason, he should not run for re-election,” Lo said.

On the other hand, Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) said he would continue to support Ma’s leadership in the party if he intended to run for chairmanship.

The KMT maintained a low profile in response to the challenges facing Ma. KMT officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said Ma still plans to run for re-election and would continue party reform while seeking unity within the party.
