Taiwan's anti-gun army bans weddings with guns

Taiwan's two main opposition parties appear to be on the verge of announcing a marriage - the leader of one will become president in January's election; The president was elected in January's general election. He will be elected president next January. The leaders of others are his representatives.

Saturday's surprise deal will shake up the campaign and raise serious questions for the ruling party, which leads in opinion polls.

But is he the groom or the bride? - His feet are cold. The gun marriage is over before it even begins, because there is no love lost between Taiwan’s old KMT and new People’s Party.

Both sides committed to building good relations and reducing the risk of war through Beijing's efforts. This distinguishes them from the Democratic Progressive Party, which has close ties with the United States and has increasingly promoted Taiwan independence.

But the similarities end there.

The Kuomintang ruled Taiwan from 1945 to 2000. He still considers the Presidential Palace in Taipei to be his permanent home. Party leaders are convinced that if they see a political founder named Ke Wenzhe, they will come back next year.

The 64-year-old former doctor has received a lot of support this election, especially from younger voters pushing for affordable housing.

His critics accuse him of being an opportunist without strong principles - and point to how he changed politics during his time in office.

In the 1990s, Ko was a staunch supporter of the Taiwan Democratic Party. At the time, the DPP was an outsider, fighting for democracy and an end to decades of Kuomintang tyranny.
