Foxconn Boss To Run For Taiwan Presidency With Blessing Of Sea Goddess
The boss of tech giant Foxconn said Wednesday he will be running for president of Taiwan -- after securing the backing of a local Sea Goddess
Taipei, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - APP - 17th Apr, 2019 ) :The boss of tech giant Foxconn said Wednesday he will be running for president of Taiwan -- after securing the backing of a local Sea Goddess.
Guo also said he would "fully support" the party's candidate if he failed to secure the nomination.
Earlier Wednesday while visiting a temple of local sea goddess Matsu in New Taipei city, the 69-year-old said the goddess "told me to step forward ... to help the people." Gou is expected to face KMT heavyweights including former party chairman Eric Chu and former parliamentary speaker Wang Jin-pyng, who have announced their intentions to run for president.
Chu lost to incumbent President Tsai Ing-wen of the Beijing-sceptic Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the 2016 presidential elections.
The DPP is set to announce its presidential candidate later this month.
He started his business in 1974 making television parts with an investment of Tw$100,000 ($3,250 at current exchange rates) from his mother, and later began producing computer parts -- eventually growing to become the world's biggest contract electronics maker.
