Commenting on recent media reports that the KMT’s higher echelons have urged Sean Lien to move out of his apartment at The Palace (帝寶) — the most expensive residential complex in Taipei — if he is serious about running in the election, Hau said it was a person’s constitutionally guaranteed freedom to choose their place of residence.

“If [Sean] Lien does become a candidate, he should assess the matter’s potential impact on his election bid and decide of his own accord whether to move out of The Palace,” Hau said.

Both outgoing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former US president John F. Kennedy were wealthy, Hau said.

“Being rich is not a sin, as long as one’s integrity and capability can withstand the test of time,” Hau said.
