China-friendly Taiwan mayor wins presidential primary

A China-friendly mayor in Taiwan on Monday won the nomination for the 2020 presidential election, posting a direct challenge to President Tsai Ing-wen who is seeking re-election. Kaohsiung mayor Han Kuo-yu beat four other contenders, including the billionaire founder of Apple supplier Foxconn, Terry Gou. The self-ruled island is set to hold its presidential election in January.
