Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) announced in a morning press conference yesterday at the Legislative Yuan that he would not seek the nomination to become the Kuomintang's (KMT) candidate for the 2016 presidential election, with his statement stopping short of ruling out an election bid altogether.
