Primary for Kaohsiung City seats?

Since registartion for legislative nominations should be done by March 12th, things are getting pretty hot in the kitchen.

The DPP is likely to hold a primary for three districts out of the five in Kaohsiung City. This is because nobody wants District 1 (Zuoying/Nanzih 左營楠梓) since it's a sure loss. In Districts 2 (三民西、鹽埕、鼓山、旗津), 3 (三民西區), and 4 (苓雅區), "two or more: DPP legislators have expressed interest in the seats. If there is no way to negotiate a solution, the DPP will resort to a primary.

Those interested are listed by CNA as:

Dist. 2 -- Former legislator Liu Chun-hsiung (劉俊雄) and Kaohsiung City Council member Lee Chiao-ju (李喬如)
Dist. 3 -- Legislators Lee Kun-tse (李昆澤) and Lin Chin-hsing (林進興)
Dist. 4 -- Former minister Pasuya Yao (姚文智) [cool name huh?] and legislator Huang Chao-hui (黃昭輝)

There's some other interesting rumors and information in the article, but it doesn't need to be rehashed in this post since the rumors were denied. Check the link if you like.

Pasuya rides again! Funny, I always thought that He-Who-Gave-Himself-An-Aboriginal-Name would end up on Frank Hsieh's campaign staff. I guess it all depends on if he wins District 4.

A thousand 不好意思's for the tacky tooting of my own horn, but I have a run-down of Pasuya's past adventures as GIO minister on my blog that you might find interesting:
