[Reporter Zheng Mingxiang/Taipei Report] Taipei Mayor Ke Wenzhe is about to step down and is preparing to compete for the 2024 presidential position. However, in the face of potential rivals Hon Hai founder Guo Taiming and New Taipei Mayor Hou Youyi who have close ties, Ke Wenzhe believes that he has little contact with Guo Taiming before 2019. Therefore, his relationship with the Kuomintang must be deeper. The two recently discussed the corruption controversy of Hsinchu mayor-elect Gao Hongan, but in the end they still mostly cheered and encouraged.

Ke Wenzhe led the head of the North City Government Bureau to hold a "Graduation Ceremony" press conference for the 8th anniversary of his inauguration. With the theme of "Sustainable Taipei, Handing over to the Future", he presented the achievements of the city government team in the past eight years and took a "graduation photo" together .

As for potential opponents Guo Taiming and Hou Youyi in 2024 who are closely related and may crowd out the road to the presidency, Ke Wenzhe believes that he had little contact with Guo Taiming before 2019, so his relationship with the Kuomintang must be deeper than his own, but this is nothing. This kind of thing just goes with the flow.

Ke Wenzhe revealed that he recently contacted Guo Taiming to discuss the issue of Gao Hongan's corruption lawsuit, but "in the end, we should work hard and encourage most." It was "made out of it". If everything is overdone, it will arouse people's resentment. I did not expect that the Hsinchu election would become the focus of the country. This has never been seen in history, and I did not expect that after the election, it will continue to hunt down. This is even more strange. .
