Mark Harrison, a Taiwan specialist at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, said Hanís choice of running mate reflected the difficult balance between "his appeal as a populist and the electoral need to present a serious and viable candidacy".
"For Han, his choice of an experienced politician like Chang San-cheng signals an effort to bring his campaign back to the centre somewhat and perhaps present himself less as a political disrupter and more as a KMT candidate conservative voters can live with," he said.
