People First Party (PFP) Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) has set his mind to run in the year-end Taipei mayoral election, Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) said yesterday. Although Soong has remained silent on whether he will run in the race, Wang, who had a private conversation with Soong on Monday, verified Soong's intention. Wang added that Soong has been complaining that the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) didn't give him the opportunity to run in the race on behalf of the pan-blue camp. The result of the KMT primary for the Taipei mayoral race, being contested by former Taipei deputy mayor Yeh Chin-chuan (葉金川), former Environmental Protection Administration chief Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) and Legislator Ting Shou-chung (丁守中), will be announced at the end of this month.
