Taipei, Oct. 17 (CNA) Eric Chu (朱立倫), chairman of the ruling Kuomintang, was selected as the party's new presidential candidate, during a special meeting of the KMT congress Saturday.

Chu replaces Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱), whose candidacy was revoked earlier in the day by the congress.

The KMT's decision to replace Hung came three months after she was selected as its candidate for the presidential election, which is scheduled for Jan. 16, 2016.
